Christmas came early for dozens of children in Redding today.

The California Highway Patrol gave away more than 30 bikes and toys to kids in need this morning as part of the annual 'Chips for Kids' bike giveaway.

CHP public information officer Jason Morton says it's a big event they look forward to all year.

And it takes a lot of people to make it happen.

Jason Morton said, “We're a big family, so it's not just our office. It takes our community to be involved like it is. We have Barbara from our Cottonwood community neighborhood watch who donates. So yeah, it's a big community effort all the way around.”

After picking out their bikes, kids were fitted with helmets donated by Mercy Medical Center and guided through an obstacle course to teach them bike safety.

Santa and his elf were also on hand.

The CHP northern division showed up in a helicopter and posed with kids in photos.

The bikes are donated by the Anrak Corporation out of Sacramento.
