Details of News Release:
The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office is now seeking donations for its Christmas Bike Program. Our goal this year is to refurbish smaller, child sized bikes. To help accomplish this, we are asking the community to come together and donate smaller bikes or funds to the program. The Christmas Bike Program began 21 years ago with the idea of promoting the holiday spirit by giving away refurbished bicycles with new helmets to underprivileged children in San Luis Obispo County. Currently, the Sheriff’s Honor Farm is the assembly point for bicycles that are donated and in need of repair. Inmates working at the Honor Farm complete all of the repairs to the bicycles. This instills in the inmates a positive work ethic, self-respect and a sense of giving back to the community. Individuals and businesses who wish to donate bicycles can bring them to any of the Sheriff’s Office Patrol stations or to the Sheriff’s Honor Farm located on Highway 1. For donations of five or more bikes we will pick up. Call 781-4637, to schedule a pick up. If you would like to make a monetary contribution for the purchase of parts or helmets, please send your check to: Sheriff’s Advisory Foundation Attn: Bicycle Fund P.O. Box 3752 San Luis Obispo, CA 93403
