Dec. 9th Food drive ride

Post by stephane » Sat Dec 02, 2017 6:28 pm

Do you like riding bikes? Do you also like helping those in need in our community? Then come out to the OBB ride on Saturday December 9th and join the Wheeler Backpack Challenge!
For the last few years, our cycling friends at Tripleshot have organised a ride in early December where club members show up with a backpack filled with food items to be donated to the Mustard Seed food bank. Last year they collected over 800 lbs of food items, and this year they have challenged the Wheelers to surpass this amount! So, we are calling on all our members to come to the December 9th Saturday ride at 9am with a backpack of non-perishable food donations. The plan is to ride together (with our full packpacks!) to Willows Beach park where donations will be dropped off before continuing on with the remainder of the regular ride. Backpacks can be dropped off too and and returned to their owners after the ride. We hope you can join us!
"For a list of items that the Mustard Seed likes to receive, please see http://mustardseed.ca/donations/#146058 ... 6ca26-fa35, and if you can volunteer with food collection or transportation please contact Stéphane Tran at teachermantran@gmail.com.

Our backpack ride is only 2 days away! We are hoping to see lots of folks out on Saturday, but if for some reason you are unable to participate in the ride and would still like to contribute somehow, the Mustard Seed also accepts private online donations through their donation portal: https://mustardseed.ca/donate-to-the-mustard-seed/.
See you all on Saturday!
