Pinellas County, Florida-- County employees rolled out 43 new bicycles along the halls of the courthouse this morning.

The bikes come complete with helmets, and are being given to clients of the county's Healthy Communities Department- families who are in need all across the county- for Christmas. 

For the 27th year, county employees have donated money throughout the year to fund the purcahse of the gleaming new bikes and helmets. 

And their generosity doesn't stop there. Employees also donated items to fulfill wish lists offered to other families in need. The wish lists included personal products, household goods and linens.
