Program to help children in need looking for volunteers
For over a decade, Mix 94.7 DJs JB & Sandy’s has been bringing holiday cheer to local children with their Bikes for Kids giveaway. To date, the program has given away 10,000 Trek bicycles to families in need throughout the central Texas community. This year, the giveaway event will happen on Friday, December 16, 2011 from 6-9 a.m. at Mellow Johnny’s. If you know of a child who could benefit from this program, nominations can be done online at Mix 94.7 .
Mix 94.7 is looking for volunteers to help assemble bikes at Mellow Johnny’s Bike Shop (400 Nueces Street) now until the giveaway party. Both individuals and groups are welcome to volunteer between 9am and 9pm daily. Mellow Johnny’s will host build parties for groups who sign up with 10 or more volunteers. Build parties are BYOB and pizza will be provided. No previous build skills are necessary as a certified instructor will be onsite to lead the building.
If interested in volunteering, please email Melinda Bowen at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, email address, and preferred date and time slot.
If you would like to donate to the program, $150 will provide a child with a bicycle, lock and helmet. Also, Mix 94.7 will be doing a fundraising breakfast at 30 Austin area Whataburgers this Saturday, November 12, 8 – 10 AM. Tickets are only $3 for an all you can eat pancake breakfast and benefit Bikes for Kids. See the Mix 94.7 for details and locations .
