Just as Santa's elves have to work all year to make their quota on Dec. 24, Burbank's Bike Angels are already busy attempting to double their goal for delivering bicycles to kids this Christmas. In 2008, the Salvation Army placed an angel tree in the city's Community Services building. Kids (or, more often, their parents) could write their Christmas wishes and place them on the tree, and the community would help Santa fill the orders. Most requests were for new shoes and warm jackets.
