Next Tuesday, November 15th at 2 p.m. and Wednesday, November 16th at 12 p.m., Working Bikes is having another shipping party for our global partner CESTA, who use bikes to empower youth in El Salvador. Join us in prepping bikes at our warehouse located at 2434 S Western Ave.

In August, our hardworking volunteers and staff prepped and loaded a shipping container of 420 bikes for CESTA. Those bikes went to their training workshop, where El Salvadorian youth learn how to fix bikes. The workshops enable them to gain valuable job skills and also give back to their community.

Be the change you want to see in the world by volunteering with us! Volunteers of any skill levels are welcomed to help. Please remember to wear comfortable clothing and closed-toe shoes.

We’ll see you November 15th and 16th!
