Support for bike giveaway program
       Great story on the Kids on Bikes program! [“Bristol Elementary puts happy spin on school year's end,” in May 26 Westside Pioneer.] I grew up quite poor and always relished getting a good USED bike at Christmas from my dad's fire station. They repaired bikes for Toys for Tots and gave them away.
       I can feel for these kids getting BRAND NEW BIKES! The picture on the front page caught that kid's uncontrollable joy!
       My question is, can you publish a little blurb on how we can all give to this wonderful, charitable cause?
