  2. I have 2 bikes that were left by teenagers at a retirement home. We have tried to contact the owners to come and pick up their bikes. They have not responded and the retirement home has asked that they be removed. I have left voice mail messages with anyone who may know these teens asking them to pick up the bikes by Tuesday 11/25/14. I also contacted the police but they no longer pick up stolen /lost / abandon bikes. Can I donate these bikes to your organization and if so, where can I drop them off.
    Please reply as soon as you can.
    Thanks
