Albany Police give impounded bicycles for needy kids Christmas

December 9, 2003

Albany -- Some children in Albany will receive bicycles for Christmas, thanks to the Albany Police Department.

120 bicycles that had picked up by the Albany Police Department over the year, were given to 14 non-profit agencies Tuesday morning.

Willis Moffitt, the Minister of the Pentecost Tabernacle of Christ Church, picked up 5 bikes to repair and give to children. Moffitt said "Bicycles and these children. They will take this bicycles, whether they are new or used, and use them just like a new bike. And they will be happy to get them."

 Lt. Hosea Miller of the Albany Police Department said "To make sure they give them to a needy child, and maybe give some kind of incentive to the kids. Maybe to attendance or some kind of grade average that will help benefit."

This is the Seventh year that the Albany Police have held their annual Chief's Bicycle Give-Away.
