Volunteer to help 3rd Annual Bike in a Boxby Carolyn Classen on Dec. 15, 2011, under Life, Politics
Email from Jesse Lugo & Lugo Charities, Inc.:
Because of generous donations, Lugo Charities Inc. is pleased to announce that we will be hosting the 3rd Annual Bike In A Box event on Sunday, December 18, 2011. This year the event will be held at St. Augustine Cathedral Church court yard located at 192 South Stone Avenue.
We will need registration volunteers to be present by 10:00 am so that we can prepare for the event. The volunteers will help to coordinate registration lines and direct the children there for about two hours.
A special invitation to 500 under-privileged children from youth organizations, schools, churches, and children-support agencies in the Greater Tucson area has been sent as they will be attending this special day of giving.
Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive in a ladder fire truck at 11:00 am to greet each of the children. Each child will be treated to a Christmas stocking and receive one of five-hundred (500) bicycles that we will be giving away, along with a bike safety helmet provided by Tucson Medical Center of the Children’s Miracle Network.
The bicycles will remain in the box so that the parents or guardians can, together with the child, assemble the bicycle in promoting the true Christmas spirit and teaching the children the basic assembly and adjustments to their new bike.

Please let me know if you will be able to help on Sunday, December 18th from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm at St. Augustine Cathedral Church court yard located at 192 South Stone Avenue.

I blogged about this terrific event last year in its 2nd year (click here). Please volunteer or donate $ if your can, to help make this another wonderful year for the 500 lucky children getting their own bike. Each year about $25,000 has to be raised to purchase these bikes.
