A lot of kids may wake up with a smile on their face on Christmas. Members of Macs Toy Fund and Boy Scouts are working tirelessly to fix bikes to be able to give to kids so they'll have a toy this Christmas season.

"There's a lot of kids out there who would like to have a bicycle but their parents just can't afford them. So we get used bikes and we fix them up as new as we can and we let the kids take their pick," said Arnold Bolen of Boy Scout Troop 103.

Members of the Raleigh County community donated the bikes. Kids can pick up their new bikes Saturday morning at 9 a-am at the Raleigh Convention Center.
