On Saturday, December 13, 2014 we decked some bikes with Christmas lights, filled our front counter with bowls of mini candy canes, and put on our Santa hats for the Working Bikes Holiday Kids Bike Sale. This annual event aims to make kids bikes accessible holiday gifts for low income families. Over the course of a couple months our volunteers repair hundreds of colorful bikes for kids aged 3-11 years old, to be sold for $5-$10 each. As an added bonus this year, each bike came with a helmet donated by the Disparti Law Group.
At 10:30am the first families began to arrive. They came prepared for cold, bundled up from head to toe in case the December weather took a turn for the worst. But luckily warmer weather prevailed and spirits stayed high until the front door opened at noon. By the end of the day we had sold 195 bikes, a Working Bikes record!
