We have a number of open volunteer positions open right now. Some newly created, some on-the-ground, some require specific expertise – all are crucial, important roles. If you’re interested in applying for these or other roles within our organization, email firstname.lastname@example.org today.
Helmet and Lock Distribution Coordinator
We are looking for a dynamic volunteer to lead an initiative that will ensure everyone who receives a refurbished bicycle may also obtain a new helmet and lock at no, or very low, cost.
Helping With Bikes provides over 200 fully refurbished bikes per year to individuals and families that are making “new beginnings” all around our great city. Helmets are an important part of cycling safety (and legally required for those 16 years old and under). For safety reasons, we are unable to give away donated used helmets. A sturdy lock is also unfortunately necessary for protecting the donated bikes from theft.
We need someone with the interest, skills, drive and energy to research and forge partnerships with other related charitable initiatives, as well as with commercial suppliers of bicycle helmets and locks to make our work complete.
Our energetic, determined Movers get their workouts in on Wednesday nights when they volunteer for furniture pick-ups and deliveries. The team heads out to collect furniture donations from several different households around the city and load these donations into the truck; heads back to the Storage Unit on Canotek Road to drop off the donations and pick up the night’s deliveries; and then hits the road to complete the very rewarding task of delivering furniture to the night’s assigned families. If you are physically strong, have lots of energy, like working in a team, and like working outdoors, then this position is for you!
