The community includes the Martinsburg Grace Brethren Church Cycling group, which started Project: Wheels of Joy.
After learning of the need through the schools, the newly established group went rolling forward quickly with what turned into a $5,000 project placing bikes and toys under Christmas trees this year.
Cycling group leader Jennifer Butler said the group is sponsoring five families from Martinsburg, two from Roaring Spring and 10 from East Freedom elementary schools.
Butler said bikes, toys and packages filled with food and household items and other items are scheduled for delivery. She said next year, the group’s goal is to have bikes for every child.
”We would like to call it a God thing,” Butler said of how quickly the effort came together.
