LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - A Louisville church spent the day giving way 100 bikes to area kids.

Promise Land Missionary Baptist Church on 28th Street, along with other members of the community, donated money to give back to the kids.

Bishop Michael Priester said the day was all about changing lives in Louisville, one donation at a time.

"There's so much going on in the country right now, we just wanted to put a smile on a child's face and bring hope, when there seems to be hopelessness in our community," he said.

Priester said they wanted to shine light on the good things about west Louisville amidst all the bad that has happened.

It's the first time the church has given away the bikes, but the objective is to do it bigger and bigger every year.
