Savannah AMBUCS Gives New Wheels to 6 Local Kids

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA -

Some deserving kids in our area have some new wheels of their own.

5 kids now can pedal around their neighborhoods thanks to Savannah AMBUCS.

The charity gave out brand new specially designed bikes to these families.

These kids quickly took advantage of their new wheels.

Moms like Miranda Cooper say its a chance to give her daughter Madeline a little bit of freedom.

"This means everything to us," explained Miranda. "I have never seen her ride a bike before, ever before AMBUCS helped us. It was just an impossibility. Something we could never do for her. We are super excited! This is Awesome!

So far this year Savannah AMBUCS has given away more than a dozen bikes to kids from around the area.

And a total of 43 bikes total since June of 2013.
