After theft, Willmar, Minn., community donates 80 bikes to Wheels4Kids


WILLMAR - At least 80 bicycles have been donated to the Wheels4Kids program since a dozen repaired bikes were stolen the first week in July.

The program uses donations and volunteers to repair old bikes and give them to needy children and teens. A grant from Willmar Kiwanis funds the program, and bike repairs are done by volunteer Jim Bode.
