Academy Sports + Outdoors celebrated the 16th anniversary of their holiday donation program and donated new bikes and helmets to students in Huntington and Tyler.

The store visited Douglas Elementary and Huntington High School and gave 30 deserving students at each school a new bike and helmet.

According to the store, the purpose of the donation events is to give local schools an opportunity to reward students during the holidays for perfect attendance, good behavior and/or need.

Academy's donation program happens throughout December across their 16-state footprint and will help over 5,000 boys and girls at over 115 donation events.
