inventory

As the inventory control person, your role is to sign out bikes and components and to make sure we have not forgotten to record anything. We have a LOT of components/parts going out with some families and it is easy to forget things. Considering the cost of even the smallest components are often the same price as the deposit parents pay to borrow a bike, we would like to make sure we get everything back in the fall so that another child can use it next year.

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.
