Dear BBP Volunteers, Members, and Supporters.
The Christmas Kids Bike Giveaway is tomorrow and I just wanted to send a quick reminder and update.
We have 420 kids coming down starting at 9am. Volunteers will be showing up in shifts from 8am-3pm, with the group volunteer picture and "Giveaway pep/prep talk" at 8:30am.
We're still taking volunteers, so sign up here, or are just show up and we'll put you to work. We're also still taking treats, and healthy snacks for the kids.
It's going to be cold, so dress warm. We're asking our volunteers to bring down any unwanted coats, hats, and gloves just incase some of the kids and families show up unprepared. ACHD will be treating and plowing our street several times today, so Lusk St should be clear. We've got 20x20 walled tents, space heaters, and tons hot chocolate and coffee coming down in the morning, so we're doing our darnedest to keep everyone warm and happy. If you have an extra propane heater, please bring it down.
420 kids is by far the most we've ever donated, and we expect another 50 to show up randomly. No child who is expecting a bike will leave without one. This is only possible through the tremendous support of so many individuals and organizations in the community. In the last 2 weeks, we've had over 500 bicycles donated to BBP. Not all have been fixable, but none have gone to waste. We live in an amazing city.
Thanks for all of your support, it is truly unbelievable.
Hope to see you on Saturday!
