Bob “The Bike Man” teams up with Springfield Police Department

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Bob “The Bike Man” Charland is back at it again, but this time he’s giving to a different group of people.

This project is called “Operation Basic Necessities,” and Charland is teaming up with the Springfield Police Department to distribute necessities to the homeless.

Charland and his friends intend to re-supply police with bags of items for the colder weather.

“The bags is one more way to bring the community closer to law enforcement,” Charland told 22News. “It’s a simple thing for them to pull over, somebody in need.”

Charland’s good deeds continue Friday, when he’ll be donating bicycles to children at a school in Chicopee.
