Columbus organization collecting bikes for annual giveaway

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Chester Jackson, the Wishing Well Foundation and TYCT Youth Organization are collecting money and bikes for the Fifth Annual Bicycle Giveaway.

Jackson says his goal this year is to hand out more than 500 bikes.

He says in the past, his team has collected more than 5,000 new or gently used bikes.

"We have a beautiful community. We have people that are just so willing to do things for our children. We want to make sure that they can have a part in doing so," said Chester Jackson.

If you would like to donate a bike you can drop it off at Jackson's body shop on Farr Road.

The bikes will be given away to children between the ages of four to 14 on Dec. 17.
