More than 200 Sioux City boys are going home with brand new bikes before Christmas.
An anonymous donor paid for the bicycles for every child who takes part in programs at the Boys Club of Sioux City. The boys had no idea ahead of time and were excited to be measured for the bike to fit their height.
For Ernesto, it’s especially exciting that he’ll have a working bike again.
Ernesto Hernandez, 13, says, “I thought it was pretty awesome, because I had a bike, but it broke.”
Valentino, 10, says, “I was really surprised; I was happy [and] excited.”
Just last week the same anonymous donor gave bikes to all the girls at Sioux City’s Girls’ Inc, too.
