TYLER, Texas (KETK) For the eighth year in a row, KETK anchor Neal Barton has hosted his Neal’s Wheels campaign to collect bicycles for East Texas children.

In 2019, we collected more than 80 bikes to donate to the Salvation army for children in need.

“Children in East Texas, many of their wishes that we obtain from their families for Christmas are bicycles,” said Capt. Nicole Parker with the Salvation Army.

“It’s so important in this day and age to allow children to be outside and to engage in the outdoors. To be able to make these wishes come true is so great.”

The goal of the program is to make sure everyone is able to enjoy the holidays.
