holiday bikes for 66 kids in athens!

Thanks to our great volunteers we turned out 66 kids' bikes for the holidays this year, only two of which remain to deliver. The BRP is taking an official hiatus through February, except for a big project during the MLK Jr. Day of Service.

We call that a big success and wish you all merry christmas and happy holidays.
