Recycle Your Little Bicycle

Now that summer has started, it is the perfect time of the year to clear out some garage space by donating those used bikes that the kids have outgrown to the less fortunate children in Sacramento. This simple donation can make a big difference in a kid's life. It can inspire a lifetime of activity, creativity and personal challenge.
Recycle Your Little Bicycle, is a donation drive being held at O'neil Park on the May 27. It is an opportunity to give a used bike to a child who would otherwise spend a summer seeking other forms of entertainment. Volunteers will repair used bikes and restore them to a like-new condition. After the restoration is complete on each bike, local businesses have agreed to purchase new helmets to give each child along with their bike.

With the great help of Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services, all bikes will be distributed to appropriate aged children. Please consider donating your used children-sized bikes, in any condition, on May 27 at O'neil Park, on 7th and Broadway, between 8am and 2pm. If you are interested in helping or donating before the event please e-mail Edgar Ortiz . Please help support the cause by checking out the event's Facebook page.
