Local business owner Kevin Benham of BLM Carpet Cleaning and his wife Heidi bought Damon McKee, 9, a brand new bike after it was stolen from his backyard in Hillyard. They surprised him with the bike when he got home from school.They even bought him a brand new lock that was on the bike.
The Benham's saw Mckee's story on KREM 2 News Sunday and said they had to help.
"If my daughter's bike was stolen I'd understand how she would feel and want to help as well," said Kevin Benham.
After the bike was stolen, Damon’s mother was so upset she put a sign in her yard hoping to call out whoever did it. Dominique McGuire said the bike was about $130, but also said it was not about the money. Her son Damon worked extra chores for months to save up for the bicycle.
Dominique said she's grateful for all the people who have wanted to help. She is still offering a $50 reward for the stolen bike. If she gets it back she plans on donating it to someone else.
