Dozens of underprivileged children received bicycles over the holidays thanks to a GILA COUNTY program still going strong after 15 years. Bicycles rescued from landfills and donated by the public are refurbished by Department of Corrections inmates hired by the county to rebuild the bikes. Replacement parts are bought by the recycling and landfill department and the county health department kicks in free safety helmets. “It’s heartwarming — it really is,” said Sharon Winters, who manages the county recycling and landfill department. “Not just for the kids and their families. Inmates tell us that being able to give back to children in the community is so meaningful for them, especially for inmates who won’t see their families while they’re incarcerated over the holiday season.”
