A local veterans group needs help storing donated bikes. 

Bikes4Vets gives bikes to veterans to help them overcome physical and mental challenges.

The organization recently received 120 donated bikes. The plan is to fix up the bikes until they're ready to be given to veterans in November, but the organization needs a place to store them for the time-being. 

"The bikes need to be refurbished so we have to have a place where we can work on the bikes. We need chains, we need seats," said Gwen Strain, the founder of Bikes4Vets. 

Anyone willing to donate storage space to the organization can call Strain at 510-978-8205.
