Adopt-A-Family Bikes, a local nonprofit, is continuing its effort to collect and repair donated bicycles for underprivileged Bay Area residents this weekend in Danville.
This Saturday and Sunday will mark the third collection weekend for the program, now in its 11th year. The group has received nearly 200 bikes so far this year, co-organizer Tania Hanson-De Young said.
The program aims to gather bicycles for distribution to other area nonprofits serving foster children and people who are homeless, unemployed, underemployed or in recovery as well as some Richmond students identified by their teachers as unlikely to receive a holiday present, Hanson-De Young said.
The bikes are cleaned, repaired and checked for safety before being given out.
The collection drive continues this weekend through Dec. 8. Bicycles may be dropped off Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 4 p.m. at 500 La Gonda Way in Danville.
