The Poverello House received more than 3,000 toys and 320 bicycles for children Saturday -- the largest toy donation the Fresno nonprofit has ever received.
The toys came from the Hell's Angels Motorcycle Club, which has been donating the toy drive for 15 years, said Kathryn Weakland, spokeswoman for the Poverello House.
About 200 club members passed out the bicycles to children Saturday afternoon at the Poverello House. The toys will be given to children on Christmas.
"It was just the most amazing experience I ever had," Weakland said about Saturday's giveaway. "Every kid should be able to get on a bike and go bike riding -- that's a kid's thing. And some had never even been on a bike, or had a bike. It was a super special day."
