CPD, ‘Elves and More’ Combine to Deliver 350 New Bicycles

CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – Christmas came early for some kids in Canton on Sunday.

The city’s police department along with the Akron-based non-profit Elves and More handed out 350 ready-to-ride bicycles in the area of 15th Street NE and Edwards Avenue.

The group assembled the bikes Saturday and gave them away from a large semi-truck on Sunday.

There were similar events earlier in Akron and Barberton.

The group’s goal is to assist inner-city, underprivileged children.

After 17 years of doing this, the group will take next year off to decide what to do next.
