Cycle of Giving is bringing volunteer mechanics together to build over 250 bicycles for Winnipeg children in need. With your support we aim to raise $15,000 to provide free bike programming across the city.
From 6 pm, December 14th to 6 pm December 15th the Orioles Community Centre @ 448 Burnell St. will be transformed into a magic workshop where salvaged and donated used bicycles are turned into holiday dreams come true.
Last year, Cycle of Giving provided over 200 kids with their very own bicycles. With your help, this year will be even better.
Welcome to the WRENCH!
Thanks for a fantastic 2013!
WRENCH Open Shop Closed till January 2014.
Open Shop Drop-In Thursdays, Noon – 5:30
Once a week participants drop in to fix their bike or build a bike with the assistance of WRENCH staff and volunteers. Everyone is welcome to participate. To ensure that money is not a barrier to accessing services, bicycles & parts are offered by suggested donation (sliding scale) or in exchange for volunteer time (average 4.5 hours for a bicycle).
note: cash donation mandatory if just taking parts
Volunteer Shop Saturdays, 2:00 – 4:30
Participants build skills by stripping, recycling and sorting bicycles & parts or working on other tasks that support WRENCH programming. Once per month Volunteer Shop hours are expanded to include volunteer orientation workshops.
Next Volunteer Orientation – 1 pm Saturday December 7th
