New Volunteer Event!

Robotics Team Bike Drive Small

Have an old bike cluttering your garage?
St. Joseph High School’s Falcon Robotics Team (F.I.R.S.T. Team #1626) is hosting a bike drive on behalf of the New Brunswick Bike Exchange (NBBE). On Saturday, October 5, 1 – 4 p.m. you can drop bikes off at St. Joseph High School, 145 Plainfield Avenue, Metuchen. No bike will be turned away! Spare parts are welcome, too. You will be provided with a receipt for tax deduction purposes.

The New Brunswick Bike Exchange aims to increase access to affordable bicycles and to raise money for the programs of the Puerto Rican Action Board (PRAB). Run completely by volunteers, NBBE collects used bikes through bike drives and private donations, recruits and trains mechanics to repair the bikes, and sells the bikes to promote a healthy and active lifestyle. All proceeds from sales benefit PRAB’s community programming. Learn more about PRAB by visiting: www.prab.org . For more information visitwww.nbbikeexchange.org , or find them on Facebook. Questions?
