Microsoft folks build bikes for kids

Thirty-nine kid-sized bikes and helmets, assembled by employees from the Silicon Valley campus of Microsoft Corp. in Mountain View, were given away recently at the nonprofit InnVision Shelter Network's Haven House at 260 Van Buren Road in Menlo Park.

Bike-building was one of many volunteer activities at Microsoft in October, with 83 percent of employees participating by giving either time or resources, according to a company spokesperson. The corporation celebrates its 30th employee Giving Campaign this year.

InnVision Shelter Network, which has shelter locations throughout the Peninsula and in San Jose, says it works toward ending homelessness for a population of over 20,000 men, women and children in Silicon Valley and the Peninsula.
