OROVILLE, Calif. - Thanks to donations from all over, Berry Creek students were gifted with brand new bikes and a full box of wrapped gifts to try and help make their Christmas a little brighter. Most of the kids have no idea they will be receiving the new gear.
"A few of the students probably know about the bikes, because two of us parents went out and purchased them, and it's hard to juggle them so they went with us. It took us three Walmarts to get enough bikes," said mom and Bear Fire survivor Tenisha Ferguson.
Tenisha Ferguson's daughter goes to Berry Creek Elementary she says her and some other moms wanted to help other kids who were hit hard by the Bear Fire.
Ferguson said Sigma Phi Sorority, Kelly Ridge Property Owners Association, Joe Moxley, and a Principal from Arizona donated gifts and enough money to buy 35 bicycles.
"It is amazing for some of these students it may not possible to get these students gifts, some are still living in Motels or travel trailers," said Ferguson.
Each kid who goes to Berry Creek Elementary is got a brand new bike and a box full of wrapped toys.
"We asked them to write a letter to Santa and kind of read the letters and chose things off their lists that were donated and put them in their boxes and wrapped them for them all," said Ferguson.
"I get new toys and I will actually be able to have more books and things," said Aubrey Molohon, Ferguson's daughter.
Aubrey Molohon goes to Berry Creek and says she thinks her classmates will love their new bikes.
"Because they have something if they live downtown or up the hill. I am thankful for the people that are helping us and they are really nice," said Molohon.
There were 26 families who recieved bikes, and each kid also received a helmet with their bike.
