The people and the privilege of helping others in the community are what inspire Frank Villegas, who manages the St. Vincent de Paul Bike Shop, where he and volunteers repair bikes for the nonprofit. He loves giving a restored set of wheels to adults and children in need of transportation for errands, school, work and fun. He considers helping “God’s work” happening at SVdP daily and remembers being on the receiving end of that love and care from SVdP earlier in his life—a story covered by ABC15 in English and Spanish. For his compassionate and mission-driven heart, Frank is the next staffer to be featured in our Behind the Hope series. Watch him in action in the Bike Shop in his Behind the Hope story above or click here.
Behind the Hope is brought to you by SVdP's Bruce Cooper and Chris Peterson.
