By Chris Schultz — First State Velo Sport is organizing a bike and parts donation drive to support the Newark Bike Project. Please get the word out and gather up your extra bikes and parts for a good cause. This bike project initiative centers around a community repair shop with shared professional tools and knowledgeable teaching-oriented volunteer mechanics. Funding comes from donations, grants, parts sales, and the refurbishing and sale of donated bicycles that would otherwise have been discarded. Special programs enable kids and lower income members of the community to own a bicycle.
The bike drive is scheduled for Saturday, January 21st, 2012 from 11am to 3pm. Donations are accepted on other days by coodinating with NBP volunteers. Email: donations@NewarkBikeProject.org
