BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - The Butte County Sheriff's Office held its 20th annual bike giveaway on Friday.

The giveaway happened at the BCSO East Facility, located at 3 Gillick Way in Oroville.

A total of 80 new and refurbished bikes were been donated to give to children across Butte County for this event.

Participants in the BCSO Alternative Custody Supervision Program and participants in the Butte County Office of Education Community Based Coalition Program have worked for months refurbishing bikes to be used for the giveaway, the sheriff's office said.

Children receiving bicycles have been identified through the Butte County Office of Education. Invitations to the event were distributed through BCOE. Helmets were also distributed along with each bicycle.

"BCSO would like to thank BCOE, Butte County Public Health, BCSO STARS, ACS participants, BCBC participants, and Sensible Cyclery. We hope a new bike will bring joy to these children this holiday season," The sheriff's office said in a press release.

Members of BCSO, BCOE, and BCPH were there to make sure bicycles and helmets properly fit each child in attendance.
