PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Santa came early, in the form of the United Steelworkers Union.

A $500,000 donation is going to help local children with special needs get adaptive bikes, strollers and iPads to communicate.

The USW just announced it’s giving $500,000 to Variety – the Children’s Charity of Pittsburgh.

Variety is now seeking families who want a bike or stroller, designed for each individual child with special needs, through the My Bike program.

Anyone who wants an iPad through the My Voice program should contact Variety. For more information visit:
