Bikes For Farmworkers, a volunteer organization supplying safe roadworthy bicycles for temporary farmworkers, is in need of used, repairable adult donated bicycles for their 2022 refurbishing program.
All bicycles go through a 50-point rebuilding program, and are then supplied to temporary farmworkers at a modest cost. After sales service includes no cost repairs and a free loaner bike if needed during the repair process. During the past year Bikes For Farmworkers supplied 297 refurbished bicycles, while repairing 205, but their supply of repairable bikes for next year is currently extremely low.
Gateway Community Church is continuing their support of Bikes For Farmworkers by having a bicycle drop-off between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 30 at, the church located at 1615 Niagara Stone Road in Virgil.
Anyone who would like to donate a repairable bicycle is encouraged to drop it off at Gateway Community Church where the Bikes For Farmworkers team will gladly receive your donation.
Anyone with bikes to donate but can’t get to the church Saturday can call Mark Gaudet at 289-783-1684, or Terry Weiner at 905-321-8638.
