Sheriff’s Office giving away bikes

The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office will hold its annual Christmas Bicycle Giveaway on Wednesday.

The giveaway will take place at noon at the Sheriff’s Honor Farm, at 880 Oklahoma Ave. in San Luis Obispo. Sheriff’s staff will hand out bikes to families and children present at the event.

The program, in its 26th year, provides high-quality childhood essentials to kids who might otherwise go without, as well as a rehabilitative program that promotes collaboration and a positive work ethic for inmates.

Sheriff’s Honor Farm inmates have refurbished bikes donated by the community to give to underprivileged local children since 1989.
