Holly Man Rebuilds Bicycles for Local Children

Holly, MI — December 6, 2020

Not all of Santa’s Elves work at the North Pole. One resides locally in Holly, Michigan. ABC News 12 featured a story this week about Gary Skelton, and his wife Jackie. They pick up old and abandoned bicycles and restore them. Working on bikes was a way for Gary to do something he enjoyed and make a little extra money for his efforts.

They found that the market for kid’s bikes was not as strong as other models, so they started giving them away to youngsters whose families could not afford to buy a new bicycle. Last year they donated 50 bikes and expect to double that amount this year.

Let’s name Gary and Jackie “Elves of the Year” for their generosity and all the hard work they put into this effort.
