Call for Volunteers

Volunteers Needed
Who: Folks who know anything about bicycle repairs, even if you just know how to fix a flat!
When: Saturday, May 22, 10am-1pm
What: Inner City Health Center’s 12th Annual Kid’s Fair. Last year, we turned around 450 bicycles, helmets & locks, and it gets bigger every year. Some of the bicycles that are donated are ready to go, some need minor repairs and/or adjustments, and some are not worth fixing but we use them for parts bikes. There are other events going on; a bicycle obstacle course, live music, the police and fire department, sno-cones and cotton candy, health oriented booths, but the bicycle give-away is the biggest draw. We provide the volunteers with food and drinks, bicycles, parts, supplies and compressed air. If you can, please bring a repair stand and basic tools.
Where: We hit a different school each year, this year at Swansea Elementary school, 4650 Columbine Street, Denver, CO 80216. From I-70 & York, go north on York and take your first right in less than a block on Steavenson Place. Go two blocks east and take a left on Columbine street. Swansea is ½ block north on the east side of the street.
