VPL Employee Organizes Charitable Bicycle Donation Effort at NASA GRC

On Wednesday, July 15, at the Hope Center in West Park, 40 bicycles previously and privately owned by NASA Glenn employees and contractors were distributed by Marilyn Groff (pictured far right) to Cleveland-area refugee families from Senegal, Bhutan, and Nepal. In addition to being fun for the children, these donated bikes are much appreciated and needed by the adults, as it provides them with a means of transportation to and from work. This is the third summer Glenn employees and contractors have donatedbicycles to this cause. Over 180 privately-owned bikes have been collected by Marilyn and given away so far.
