Collecting Old Bikes for a New Life!

Date

May 25

Time

Description

BankCherokee is hosting a Bike Drive this spring to benefit Express Bike Shop and would like you to consider partnering with us on this fun project. 

Express Bike Shop, a social enterprise of Keystone Community Services, is a local business that refurbishes and sells used bikes through an apprenticeship program that develops the work, leadership and entrepreneurship skills of youth in the community.

Our goal is to collect 250 used bikes from our employees and customers like you. The bike drive is scheduled for late April thru May 25th.

The bikes can then be brought to any of our four branches in St. Paul and North Oaks. No collection amount will be too small – we will be grateful to collect one bike or 20 bikes and tricycles are also welcomed!  The condition of the bike does not matter as spare parts are always needed.  Donation receipts for a tax deduction will be provided. 

Please join us in this exciting opportunity to clean out your garages and help a great organization gain access to more inventory – bikes and bike parts – all of which help support youth in our community.

Thank you for your support!
