2020/09/19 Bike Return

September 19, 2020 is our Fall Bike Return day! Clients who have borrowed an adaptive bike for the summer season will be returning bikes today, and we need your help to make it happen. Location of all events: 11415-168 St NW Edmonton. If you are an able-bodied volunteer please park along 114 Avenue so that the children and families can park closer to the event space. If you would like to sign up for a full day shift, please just select consecutive times. The overlap is simply to allow for training of new volunteers arriving by those who already served in that role. We will provide refreshments to all volunteers: coffee & tea (no milk, only non-dairy creamer available), water, hot food, and snacks. Please bring your own bottle for water as we only have small cups for a water dispenser/cooler. If you have specific dietary requirements please contact info@youcanride2.ca to ensure we meet your needs.

Providing Food for Volunteers

This role helps us keep our operating costs down by asking volunteers to help provide food and refreshment for out event volunteers. It is a great role for someone who wants to help but cannot attend the event itself. We need to provide hot meals, side dishes, snacks, sweets, and cold drinks. You can help by making food yourself, by arranging for donated food from a business, or purchasing some goods and donating them yourself. This role is handled on an individual basis through the program coordinator to ensure that we get the full range of food required. Please contact info@youcanride2.ca to follow up with this role and to assign your specific tasks.
