Weekly Update: Busy week!

Posted by Sarthak Prasad on August 2, 2021

All, Busy week! Sold bikes, stripped bikes, helped people fix bikes. We had especially good volunteer turnout on Friday. One frequent visitor even donated his neighbor’s old bike that was headed for the dumpster before he intercepted. Another person said they’ll be here to volunteer on Monday.

Donations, thankfully, have hit a little bit of a lull, so we’ll be able to spend this week catching up on that. On Friday alone—see aforementioned volunteer levels—we started 4 new shop builds that will be finished this week.

We also sold a bike to someone from Housing who works specifically in promoting healthy and environmental lifestyles in the dorms. He seemed really jazzed about our programming and operations. Hopefully that’ll be a future partnership.

The numbers:

Visitors: 28
Sales: $1,307.10
Memberships: 2 for $60
Bikes (refurb): 6 for $1,040
Tires/tubes: 5 for $26
U locks: 3 for $63
