The Community Cycling Center‘s annual Holiday Bike Drive was all set for another successful day of making bike dreams come true for over 500 low-income Portland-area kids…but that was before the big storm hit.
As the weather worsened on the day of the event (last Sunday), staffers decided to cut it short, leaving about 350 kids without new bikes.
Now, the CCC is gearing up for a Holiday Bike Drive sequel for January. An announcement on their website states, “We will spend the next few weeks organizing volunteers and staff, coordinating with social service agencies and families, and fundraising like crazy to pull the whole thing off.”
The sequel event is expected to cost about $3,000 in staff time and supplies to pull off.
