The bike drive was organized by the local Make A Change Foundation. Foundation Vice President Chris Mallahan worked with O'Connell at the State Patrol, she said.
O'Connell's family attended the event on Friday. The drive also collected helmets and $3,200 in toys, Mallahan said.
Police and firefighters from throughout Snohomish and Skagit counties contributed to the drive.
O'Connell died in May in an on-duty accident while working traffic control in Conway after the Skagit River Bridge collapse.
"It's still clearly fresh in people's minds," Mallahan said. "It's going to be a tough year for their family, and we wanted to do something positive, and here we can give hundreds of kids a great Christmas."
