Contra Costa County Bikes for Tykes

For over 20 years, Contra Costa County Firefighters have been running a program called Bikes for Tykes. The Bikes for Tykes program began with an engine company crew in Martinez that would rebuild bikes for some of the less fortunate neighborhood kids and giving them away at Christmas. Over the years, the program has grown to giving out nearly 500 new bikes a year to various organizations, schools, local children, and Children’s Hospital of Oakland.

Widows and Orphans Program

Funds raised for the Widows and Orphans Program go toward the families of our fallen brothers and sisters. The funds are used toward services, flowers, and burial expenses.
