Retired New Haven Police Captain Patricia Helliger always went the extra mile to help people in need.
News 8 first told you about Helliger’s effort back in April to help the island hard-hit by Hurricane Irma. She said bike donations have been slow and she’s going to need about 1,000 sets of wheels for the number of schools she’s sponsoring.
A couple bicycle shops have signed on to help restore the bikes, and some local students are stepping in too.
If you want to help the cause, email Helliger at firstname.lastname@example.org.
