This was a wonderful happening put on by this club from East Palo Alto.
However I find it interesting that there are no comments to this article. Here there was a positive showing and charitable event put on by some of the citizens of EPA, yet there are no comments submitted by any of the neighbors from Palo Alto. Are many of the folk on the other side of the freeway hesitant to comment when the good and productive citizens EPA prove to be in the overall majority?
Once again this silence from some of the active online commenters from the Palo Alto's citizenry may be proving to show it's real colors. "That being fan the flames of EPA"s negativity and put out any light or show of positivity."

As cynical as you may think this is-I have viewed the annual Christmas toy events by the motorcycle clubs as mostly public relations plays. Clubs all over the Bay area (and the US) have been doing it for years, and it always gets media attention. They always have a prearranged with the media mass drive up to drop toys by.
How much attention do folks get (or ask for) who donate to Toys for Tots at the fire stations each year?
Whether East Palo Alto, San Jose or Oakland, it all seems to be for the positive image building for the motorcycle clubs.
