It's a chance to make sure local kids have something under the tree come Christmas morning.

We'll be collecting your generous donations from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the News 10 station. That’s 800 Ohio Street in Terre Haute.

The money will buys bikes and helmets for kids in the Wabash Valley.

We caught up with Bethany Keller, who is a caseworker at the Salvation Army. She helps find a deserving home for some of the bikes.

She says they already have 1,100 families signed up for help this holiday season, which is higher than years past.

“Families come in and say, “This is great we didn't know this existed. The school sent a letter home.’ So I think that the need has always been there but the need is getting met this year.”

You can donate online here.
