SPOKES for FOLKS Christmas Push – This Sunday

with 2 comments

This popped up on the BFR Facebook page, so we thought we should share:

SPOKES for FOLKS CHRISTMAS PUSH THIS SUNDAY–Please come if you can

We have a lot to do—
• We are still trying to fill a 50 bike request for the four locations of Family Gateway
• Just received a new request for 36 bikes from the Heart of Africa associated with Lover’s Lane United Methodist Church.
• 30 – 50 families are coming from Jubilee Center to work and earn bikes for their kids—we need mechanics to help them learn!

Come rebuild bikes for several really good causes!

Sunday from 10 AM until about 2 PM
Everyone is welcome and needed, experienced or not. Bring tools if you have them.

8901 Chancellor Row at Hans Johnsen Company – south of 183 of Regal Row just past Superior Foods

It will be our last chance to rebuild bikes to give to others for the holidays.

Come for the camaraderie, come for the fun, come to learn more about repairing your own bikes.

PLUS—Dea Henson, expert massage therapist, is donating her time and skill—if you’re sore from riding, come build a bike and get a free massage!

Spokes for Folks is a non-profit organization – based in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas – that refurbishes donated bicycles that are then given to children of families that could not otherwise afford to buy them.

    • Donna,

      Thank you for wanting to donate. Unfortunately, we at Suburban Assault can’t take your donation. You are more than welcome to contact Spokes For Folks directly at: http://www.spokesforfolks.org.

      I’m sure they’d be glad to accept your donation.

      Cheers.
