OSCEOLA, AR (KAIT) - A man in Osceola is asking for help from the community to continue looking out for kids in his neighborhood.

Tyrone McNeal finds old bicycles and scooters to restore them for children whose families can't buy new bicycles.

The bike they get from McNeal is their first and it is a dream come true.

"Some children aren't fortunate to have new things," said McNeal. "You know, they're just trying to make it day to day with the parents. This is what gives me joy. To see a smile on a kids face."

McNeal said someone else's trash can be another person's joy.

McNeal is asking the community who has old bicycles or scooters to contact him at (870) 549-7849.
