Bikes for Christ hopes to deliver to Panhandle kids

When you drive up to Pat Simmon's house, the first thing you notice is bikes - everywhere.

There are dozens of them, in every size and color.

Simmons runs Bikes for Christ, which gets donated bikes, fixes them, and gives them out to people who need them.

Right now, he is collecting used bicycles for kids 10 and under who live in the area of the Panhandle ravaged by Hurricane Michael.

“I can’t imagine not having a Christmas,” he commented to FOX 13. “I can’t imagine there not being presents under the tree.”

So he is doing whatever he can to prevent that.

Along with looking for more donated bikes, Simmons is hoping someone steps forward and provides a way to get the bikes to the Panhandle. If donations go really well, Simmons will be looking for additional storage space.
