Mathis, who died in 2013, gave bikes to kids who couldn't afford them. Now, his work lives on through his wife Ann.

Ann helps to run the Bicycle Man program, which continues Mathis' work.

Moses founded the program and over the years gave away over 30,000 bikes to kids in the Fayetteville area.

The bikes that were collected Saturday at the drive will be distributed later this holiday season.
