Inmates Restore Bikes for Local Kids

Provided by Friendly House of Davenport

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.

I am currently a senior at Augustana College, majoring in Multimedia Journalism and Mass Communication with a minor in Creative Writing. I serve as the General Manager for WAUG.fm, Augustana's online student radio station and have worked as an intern and DJ at Studstill Media Group. I report on local news for WVIK and am honored and excited to be a part of the news team. I hope to pursue a career in radio broadcasting and an eventual master's degree in English or Communications.
