Christmas party held for special children


Dozens of local children with special needs have bikes for Christmas, thanks to the Jacksonville Association of Firefighters.

The fire union held its annual Christmas party Thursday morning in a partnership with Wolfson Children's Hospital.

The bicycles are given to children with physical difficulties. The firefighters design each bike to fit the needs of each child.

The bikes were brought to the Christmas party and Santa and Mrs. Claus delivered them to the kids.

Firefighters told News4Jax they love to help throughout the year, but this time of year it is extra special.
