"We immediately said, ‘absolutely.’ We called Ashley Freeman from REACH who said they definitely had some kids who could use the bikes," said Pam and Davis Forshee, owners of Smoky Mountain Bicycles. "So with $600 we were able to donate three bikes to REACH. What a great feeling to be able to help children this time of year. We are so honored Secret Santa picked us and glad we can give to the community."

Smoky Mountain Bicycles also donated three helmets.

The Secret Santa wanted no recognition for his good deed, just to spread some holiday cheer in the community.
