BIKE PROJECT - Help Needed to Move the Bikes and Deliver them to the Children

We are continuing to help the Pasadena Rotary Club on their annual Bike Project for the needy. Together with Altadena and Pasadena clubs, we have donated enough money to buy 200 bikes that will be gifted to children ages 3 – 11 on December 15 in time for the holidays.

We need your help!

Tuesday December 13:
Location: PUSD warehouse (where the bikes were assembled) is located at 740 Woodbury Road, Altadena.

-10 AM to Completion: Moving the bikes from PUSD to the Salvation Army Tabernacle on 960 E. Walnut Street in Pasadena. I will be at PUSD to unlock the shipping container (I have the key). Terry is sending a Salvation Army truck though it may have to make multiple trips to move all 200 bikes. We need volunteers to load the truck at PUSD. We need more volunteers to unload the truck, move the bikes into the event room at Salvation Army.
Location: Salvation Army Tabernacle is located at 960 E. Walnut Street, Pasadena.

-1 PM to Completion: We need volunteers to organize the bikes, give them a once over for any mechanical defects (All Around Cycling is sending a mechanic to help us) and check for flat tires. We will then hang the bows and bags with the helmets, locks and water bottles on each bike. We must also confirm that the registration forms were filled out correctly and cross check the serial numbers on each bike.

Thursday December 15:
Location: Salvation Army Tabernacle is located at 960 E. Walnut Street, Pasadena.

-8:30 AM to 1 PM: This is the culmination of all our hard work! We need volunteers to help people get their bikes and register them. Salvation Army volunteers will check in each parent and hand off the paperwork to Rotary volunteers (in groups of two) who will select the correct bike by size and gender. We then move the bike and parents to the Pasadena PD table where the registration will be completed. After that, help the parent load the bike into their vehicle.

Let Gilda know if you can help…
