Albany nonprofit gives away bikes for Christmas


An Albany nonprofit organization is giving away bikes to children during the holiday season.

The Al Rakim Temple #142 gave away 25 bikes Wednesday evening.

They said their main mission is community service. 

"For us it's a blessing to be able to see smiles on kid's faces at Christmas time. For the parents, some of them are not able to do it right now but it's a blessing for us to be able to step in that gap and be able to fill that gap for them," said Kyle Walters with the the temple.

The organization started at the beginning of the year, collecting money from each member to purchase the bikes.
