Kathleen Santora started collecting gently used bikes 20 years ago at St. Nicholas School in Los Altos Hills.
Her good friend Lori Johnson has been helping over the years and she commented, “Every time we always wonder, will anyone come?” They always do.
GreenTown Los Altos started helping 5 years ago, and this year we were at Los Altos High School and we had lots of help – students washing bikes, filling tires and doing minor repairs. We collected 80 bikes! Two schools in Mountain View, Castro Elementary, and Graham Middle School will get 40, Los Altos High School will get 17 and the rest will go to Hope Services, an organization that helps the homeless and disabled.
GreenTown is proud to be part of this wonderful tradition!
