Police team up with group to give out bicycles

Hollister police are looking for a little help toward making some kids’ holidays a lot better.

For last the three years, Hollister Police Department has teamed up with Turning Wheels for Kids (TWFK) to help some of our local children in need to receive a bicycle during the holidays. Turning Wheels for Kids provides thousands of bicycles throughout the Bay Area for this purpose. This relationship with Turning Wheels for Kids has resulted in 300-plus local children in Hollister and San Benito County receiving new bicycles and helmets over the last three years

As the program has grown, the needs have ground exponentially for Turning Wheels for Kids. This year Turning Wheels for Kids is in need of both monetary donations and /or donated silent auction/raffle items (needed by Dec.  1 at 5 p.m.

Turning Wheels for Kids is teaming up with Hollister Police Department to recieve auction items that they will be delivered to the silent auction site in San Jose on Dec.  2. Hollister Police Department will begin accepting auction items the week of Nov. 20  in the lobby of HPD located at 395 Apollo Court during regular business hours.
