Columbus firefighters donate bikes to 17 families

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The Columbus Fire Association is spreading Christmas joy this season.

The association wrapped up a bike giveaway moments ago as they brought Christmas joy to 17 families in Muscogee County.

The bikes were handed out at the Truth Springs Academy on 5th Avenue in Columbus for families in need this holiday season.

"The guys down at Station 6 did a wonderful job of putting these bikes together- and then we've got a couple of charities that we give these to and this one happened to be the Truth Springs. So... Walmart gave us the bikes we got to do a little bit of work on them- the guys at 6 put them together and we were fortunate enough to come out and deliver them today," said a firefighter.

The bikes were handed to Truth Springs ministry to distribute the 17 bikes.
