WHEATON – Giant Steps Vice President of Programs and Principal Amanda Santiago checks out a red bike recently given to the Lisle nonprofit with a child receiving services from the organization.

The bike was donated, along with four gently-used computer monitors and $1,300, by Durham School Services and Durham bus driver Ruth Taylor, who transports children to and from Giant Steps.

The nonprofit provides education and therapy to individuals with autism spectrum disorders.

In honor of Autism Awareness Month, Taylor organized a bake sale and auction to benefit the organization.
