Dream Big, Start Small

Re-post from Trips For Kids WNC...  to important not to share.  Please help if you can!

I am very excited to announce that we  have passed inspection and are approved to operate a Bicycle Thrift Shop in the city of Asheville.  With the help of several volunteers, we have painted, and cleaned up a small warehouse space near just outside of Biltmore Village in the Oakley neighborhood.   Over the next week or so, we will be moving in and getting things set up for a soft opening, with a grand opening party in the works for early fall…. can we have some blue grass and BBQ?   Hopefully.
In the meantime, I must share with you our biggest need.  Several individuals, including some local bike shop mechanics have stepped up to volunteer their time in refurbishing donated bikes which is awesome.  But,  the one thing we currently lack is tools.   Park Tools is working with us to make a one time discounted purchase on tools to outfit the shop.   As you may know, purchasing this amount of tools can be quite costly.  Our goal is to raise $1000 in the next week, so that we can get the shop outfitted. Will you help with this last important piece of the puzzle?  You can donate right now by clicking here.
Thanks for reading, stay tuned for more details!
