COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX)- For the past four years, Reynolds & Reynolds builds and donates 100 bikes to children in the Brazos Valley.

"A bike is such a traditional present that's kind of like the spirit of Christmas and it's fun and it's freedom for kids," said William Wright, with Reynolds & Reynolds.

This year, for the second time in a row, the team coordinated with the Brazos Valley First Responders Association. Reynolds & Reynolds decided to donate their bikes to children of local first responders, as a thank you for all that their mom or dad has done for the community.

"We're giving these bikes to the first responder's kids, and It's just like a nice treat and a good way to say thank you," said Wright.

Wright said since last year was such a big success, they had more volunteers help them construct all 100 bikes.

"It took us like an hour only, and we had a lot of people come out, it was neat," said Wright.

After constructing the bikes, the team then hauled them off to their designated locations.

"It makes you feel good when you see the kids light up and, you know, watching the parents tear up, it's really a great feeling to know we're helping," said Wright.
