Bob “The Bike Man” Charland continues to put smiles on children’s faces.
On Monday, Charland delivered bikes to a family who lost everything in a house fire.
The Briggs family’s Feeding Hills home was heavily damaged on Red Fox Drive in March.
Charland delivered two children bikes to Garfield Street in Springfield, where they’re staying. The Briggs family said they’re very grateful for the community’s support.
“It’s amazing to know that people out there watching and listening and trying to help and it’s very supportive,” Gina Briggs told 22News. “It’s amazing, it’s a wonderful feeling.”
The Agawam and Springfield Fire Departments accompanied Charland on Monday when he delivered the bikes.
