Police help donate bicycles to ‘Spokes 4 Hope’

Special to the Star-Telegram

Area police officers donated more than 100 new bicycles to kids at a Fort Worth elementary school Thursday.

Officers from Fort Worth, Keller, Southlake and Watauga police departments escorted the “Spokes4Hope” tractor-trailer from Southlake to Sydney Poynter Elementary School in far south Fort Worth. Keller Williams Realty employees purchased and assembled the bikes.

Southlake police officer Alton Wells said he appreciated seeing the kids’ “faces light up” at the giveaway, which he likened to “Christmas in May.” — Mark David Smith
