PUT-IN-BAY, OH (WOIO) -

A group of parishioners set up a bike drive and collected 50 bikes to send to Puerto Rico for hurricane victims. 

Puerto Rick was hit by Hurricane Maria on Sept. 20. It is still recovering. 

Volunteers from  La Sagrada Familia Catholic church in Cleveland picked up the bikes.

A Put-in-Bay bike shop fixed them up with donation money to get them in good shape. 

The project was a community effort from church leaders, business owners and city leaders.
