Scott County Jail inmates just helped make some Christmas wishes come true. Yesterday, the Scott County Sheriff's Department and Friendly House presented bicycles and helmets to 30 children. Inmates restored the used bikes. 

Friendly House representative Andi Engler says the inmates were present at the ceremony and got to witness the children's reaction firsthand.
Engler says this was the program's eleventh bicycle giveaway since the Scott County Jail started the program in 2005.
