AKRON -- Two days before Christmas, nearly 1000 children were surprised with bikes from a group called "Elves and More of Northeast Ohio."
Over 350 volunteers helped to build the bikes last week.
After filling a warehouse, the group took the bikes to a secret location and gave them out to needy children in a local neighborhood.
Volunteer Tim House explains, "It goes beyond the smile of the kid. It's that feeling you get from the grandmother who might be raising her grandkids, or the parent who couldnt afford Christmas this year... Those thank yous are really the only reason we do this."
