Letter: Gateway Community Church bicycle dropoff Saturday

Dear editor:

Bikes For Farmworkers, a volunteer organization supplying safe, roadworthy bicycles for temporary farmworkers, is in need of used, repairable adult bicycles to be donated for its 2022 refurbishing program.

All bicycles go through a 50-point rebuilding program and are then supplied to temporary farmworkers at a modest cost.

After-sales service includes no-cost repairs and a free loaner bike if needed during the repair process.

During the past year Bikes For Farmworkers supplied 297 refurbished bicycles while repairing 205, but the supply of repairable bikes for next year is currently extremely low.

Gateway Community Church is continuing its support of Bikes For Farmworkers by having a bicycle dropoff between 11 and 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 30 at the church located at 1615 Niagara Stone Rd. in Virgil.

Anyone who would like to donate a repairable bicycle is encouraged to drop it off at Gateway Community Church where the Bikes For Farmworkers team will gladly receive your donation.
