We're approaching that time of year when our local Southern Tier Bicycle Club www.southerntierbicycleclub.org/
puts on their Annual Bike Giveaway for people with limited income. Donated bikes do not have to be in working order as we have a number of dedicated bike club members who are quite skilled in rehabilitating broken, neglected bicycles.
Here is the contact information you need to arrange for donating bicycles. Let me know (via SparkMail) if there is anything I can do to assist as well!
The annual bike give away day at the George F. Johnson Dream Center is scheduled for May 11. Although the inventory is off to a very good start this year, we can use many additional smaller frame bikes, particularly mountain bikes and BMX style bikes that would interest the 8 to 13 year old set. Check you garages, talk to your friends, relatives, coworkers, and neighbors and if there are any available, call or text me at 607-648-6081 or email at email@example.com and I will arrange to pick them up at a time that is convenient for you. The Dream Center can issue receipts if you wish to deduct the donation. The bikes do not have to be in working order, they will be repaired prior to distribution. As the date approaches, watch for updates and consider coming out to help with the distribution -- it might be hot or it might be rainy, but the smiles on the kids will make the effort worthwhile.
PS -- please feel free to cross post this to any other mail lists that you feel would be appropriate
