David Carrasquillo assembling a 16 inch bicycle. Inmates at the Toledo Correctional Institution (TCI) assemble 117 bicycles for Lucas County Children's Services in Toledo, Ohio on December 7, 2016. The bikes were donated by The Bike Lady, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, all-volunteer charitable organization based in Columbus, Ohio that provides new bikes, helmets and locks for children. The inmates applied to TCI to be allowed to participate, and 10 were selected, based upon their behavior, cooperativeness, etc. during the year; one person was sick, so nine men had 117 bikes, ranging in size from 16" to 26" to construct. Fulton, Sandusky, and Wood Counties also will be receiving some of the bikes. Teamsters Local 20 helped to pay the freight from Huffy in California to Toledo.
