American Legion Commander Jack Volk said the American Legion Post 24 and the VFW Post 756 made a request to the City of Devils Lake to declare unclaimed bikes as surplus. And request City donated the bikes to them.  

“The Post members will go through the bikes, refurbish them and hand the bikes out to children in need of a bike,” Volk said.  “The Devils Lake Fire Dept will donate a helmet to each bike that gets donated.”
