National Day of Service at OCBC

This Monday, January 19th, as part of the National Day of Service for Martin Luther King day, you can do your part to promote bicycle safety education by helping the Ohio City Bicycle Co-op get ready for spring -- building shelves, sorting bike parts, lubricatling chains, and pumping tires. Mechanical ability is helpful, but not required: you can learn while you serve!

Besides honoring Dr. King's memory and helping to equip the co-op's bicycle safety education programs, your sweat equity will earn you volunteer credit toward lessons, shop-use membership, and refurbished bikes.

At least one hour of service is requested, anytime between 12:00 noon and 4:00pm. Orientation and training sessions will be held at 12:00 noon and 2:00pm. Work clothes are recommended. Gloves, all tools and supplies, and light snacks are provided.

Please sign up for the OCBC event here:
