Volunteer at the Lake Oswego Holiday Bike Donation Drive (LOHBD)

Dear Riders & Bike Community Volunteers:

Please join us at our second annual LOHBD to collect donation bikes for the non-profit programs of ExchangeCycleTours.org (ECT), Community Cycling Center (CCC), and the Girl's Scouts. Below are the event announcement and details.

We need volunteers to:

1. Set up (10:30AM arrival)
2. Receive donors & donations, provide info about ECT & CCC. (11AM - 4PM)
3. Process donated bikes (remove pedals, turn handlebars; 11AM - 4PM)
4. Load bikes into CCC's truck & other volunteers' vehicles and unload bikes at storage locations (1:30PM - 5PM)

All tasks are easy to perform for anyone 13 and over. Come as you are, all equipment will be provided.
We will split into two shifts: 10:30AM - 2PM & 2PM - 5PM.

Please RSVP with Matt Picio at:

"execdir@exchangecycletours.org" or "info@exchangecycletours.org"

and specify which shift(s) you can volunteer for, and if you need a ride to the event location.

We will provide free breakfast & lunch for all volunteers. Please submit your dietary preference with your RSVP.
If you would like to donate food for this event, please also let Matt Picio know.

All volunteers will meet at the Lake Grove Albertson's location. (Some volunteers may ride with CCC's truck to Athey Creek Middle School for pick-up.)

Thanks and hope to see you next Saturday in Lake Oswego!


Exchange Cycle Tours is excited to be cooperating with Community Cycling
Center for a second year to support their Holiday Bike Drive!

If you have an old or unused bicycle sitting in your attic, basement or
garage, why not donate it to a good cause? ECT and CCC both promote
community through organized rides, free bicycle clinics, and maintenance and
safety training classes, and CCC has been refurbishing bicycles and
providing them to children and low income families since 1994. This year we
are also proud to partner with the Girl Scouts - Columbia River Council.

This is a one-day event on Saturday, December 1st. We'll be accepting
bicycles at two locations:

CCC and ECT will be accepting bicycles at the Lake Oswego
Albertson's on Boones Ferry (16199 Boones Ferry Road) from 11am to 4pm.

CRC Girl Scout Troops 2574 and 2611 will be accepting bicycles for
donation on behalf of ECT and CCC at Athey Creek Middle School (2900 SW
Borland Rd. in West Linn) during their Trefoil Bazaar event, from 12:30pm to
4 pm.

Last year, our community rallied and donated 120 bicycles, let's break that
record this year!
