Community help for Cycles for Change
Fri, Sep 27 12:19pm

Hello Bay Farm Families, 

Help is needed by our broader East Bay community.  The Oakland based nonprofit Cycles for Change was doing a bike program at Maya Lin Elementary here in Alameda when their truck was stolen! Here is the official City of Alameda report and request for aid. This is a wonderful East Bay organization that works here in Alameda.

Let's show them how generous we can be!

Early yesterday morning, a truckload of 50 bikes and safety gear was stolen from in front of Maya Lin School, where Cycles for Change was teaching bike safety. Throughout the year, they help hundreds of our kids learn to bike safely to school and in their neighborhoods. We can help them rebuild -- here's how:

DONATE A BIKE: Bicycle donations are being accepted at the following locations:
-- Alameda Fire Station 4 on BFI: 2595 Mecartney Road

MONETARY DONATIONS: A truckload of safety gear was also stolen - helmets, bike parts, tools, and more. You can donate online at https://www.cyclesofchange.org/donate.
