Volunteer Opportunity Nov. 29-30

Mr. Michael Recycles Bicycles is looking for a few handy volunteers to help repair used bicycles over the Thanksgiving weekend.  Here's an announcement re-posted from their website:

Attention Volunteers!

Sunday, November 16th, 2008

We are having our next blitz on Saturday, November 29 between 10 AM and 6 PM and again on Sunday the 30th from noon to 4 PM.  The focus of this blitz will be to prepare bicycles for Holiday Wishes recipients.  If we complete all of those, then we will work on some kid-size bicycles to make available to people who don’t qualify for one of the charity programs but still are looking for gifts for their kids.  We will offer our usual array of food and drink for the volunteers, so please consider coming to the shop and fixing some bicycles.  If you are not a bicycle mechanic but want to help, come anyway because we have some work available that does not involve fixing bicycles.

We have lots of great used parts to sell.  In fact, we have just as much, if not more, than the basement over at One on One, so if you didn’t find what you were looking for in Geno’s stash,  come over and check out ours.  All funds received from the sales of our parts, accessories, and the bike art goes to offset expenses of the shop.  Check us out, we are affordable and the money helps the needy get bicycles.

I am not very familiar with Mr. Michael but I am planning to donate some time to help them out.  He and his wife run the shop, selling use parts and bikes to cover their primary mission, which is giving away bicycles to needy people.  They get the bikes at recycle events and accept donations as well.  Contact information is available on their website (link above). I bet this will be pretty fun, and I am curious to learn more about Mr. Michael and his bicycle ministry, and to lend a hand as well.
