JACKSON, MO (KFVS) -

Perfect attendance paid off for thirty students at North Elementary in Jackson on Friday.

Academy Sports and Outdoors donated 30 bikes and helmets to children who had perfect attendance, last month.

"It's just a great way to be part of our community and let the community know they were here and to be able to put that smile on a child's face would be one of the best reasons that I can think of," said John Keene, Academy Sports Assistant Manager.

This is part of Adademy's holiday donation program that gives out a quarter million dollars worth of bikes and helmets during the Christmas season.
