The Carpinteria Children's Project has been working with 120 families who have been affected by the Thomas fire & the debris flow. SBBIKE and Cottage Hospital are partnering with the CCP for a Bike GiveAway on Friday, April 27, 2018.
Thirty kids bikes refurbished by Bici Centro volunteers and 30 new helmets provided by Cottage Hospital will be donated to pre-selected young children. Parents & children will review some basic safety tips taught by a bilingual certified League Cycling Instructor and they will learn how to properly fit a helmet. After the short educational presentation, kids will test their riding skills with volunteers and parents' help. Most of those kids never had a bike and will discover the joy of riding.
Interested in volunteering, helping with helmet fitting? If so, please sign up for the one hour shift at the bottom of this page.
If you have a youth bike that's collecting dust in your garage, consider donating it to Bici Centro. You can make a kid in our community very happy and grateful for the gift. Thank you!
