The owner of Central Florida Recycling Center in DeLand handed out free bikes to area children Thursday.
Owner Danny Gennaro said that he was able to refurbish about 150 bikes.
"We gave them to foster families last week. Like even this morning we had some churches that came in too and pastors. We donate bigger quantities to them, too," Gennaro said.
It's the first year Gennaro has accepted the donated bikes with the goal of handing them out during Christmas.
