If you’ve been in to volunteer in the past few weeks then you’ve already seen that we’re in full Christmas Giveaway bike build mode. Getting hundreds of kids bikes ready for the big giveaway is a major focus but there are several ways you can help BBP accomplish it’s mission this year without even touching a wrench.

There will be a Christmas Giveaway Volunteer Leadership Committee meeting Wed. the 25th right here at the Bike Project. The meeting starts at 6:00pm and we will be discussing the various roles and volunteer opportunities related to the event. Volunteers will be needed for everything from passing out snacks to driving families to and from the shop on the day of the giveaway. The Christmas Giveaway is is a special event to be a part of and everyone is encouraged to attend and find out how to help make it happen!

We’re still in need of some tools to restock our benches.

If you’ve got extras of the following tools, please consider donating. Donating a tool today will help make our Kids Bike Giveaways and other non-profit programs a success.  

Tools we need:

  • Box cutters
  • Dead blow hammers
  • Scissors
  • Metric wrenches (one more set please!)
  • Any bike tools

Thank you!!
