CLEVELAND-- A group of students is getting crafty this Christmas. They’re repairing scooters for charity.

"When I first initially came into the school, I thought I'd be working with high school students,” recalls Rob Stilwell. “However, my children are seven and nine and they both know how to work on the Razor scooters. I figured if my kids can do it, I'm sure these kids can do it too."

Stilwell volunteers at Charles Mooney School on Montclair Avenue in Cleveland. He goes there twice a week to help the kids repair scooters. Once they’re done, the club plans to donate them to ‘Toys for Tots.’

“It’s a well-known organization that I really believe in. They do things for the community and the children and it’s just a great organization to donate to,” he said.

Students taking part say it’s a good feeling knowing they’re helping others in need. “If I was an orphan or something who wanted one of these really bad and I couldn’t get it for Christmas, I would be really excited for it,” said Kevin Rosa.

Randy Phalgoo agrees. He said it’s been a fun experience.

“I like that we all work as a team and we help people just by doing the stuff that we like to do,” he said.

The club is always looking for more scooters to repair and donate.
