Volunteer Updates

There is lots happening this month and next. We can definitely use volunteer help at various events and also in the shop. Check out the volunteer opportunities below along with our holiday closing dates.

Scrap Day
Our next Scrap Day is Friday, November 20th from 1-4pm. We have a lot of scrap to unload but with many hands we can make quick work. If you would like to come and help, email Mari at onsite@thehubofdetroit.org. This will of course count towards your volunteer hours.

Noel Night
On Saturday, December 5th from 5pm-9pm we will be open for Noel Night. If you haven't been, it's a great event in midtown Detroit. Businesses, cultural centers and more will all be having open houses welcoming guests to experience food, games, etc. We will be making bike themed ornaments and also hosting our Garage Sale. Please let us know if you would like to help with this event.

Garage Sale
As mentioned above, we will be hosting a garage sale during Noel Night from 5pm-9pm. The second day will be on Sunday, December 6th from 1-5pm. We could use your help with bike sales and working the garage sale. Email Mari at onsite@thehubofdetroit.org if you would like to help.

Bike the Blizzard
Our main fundraiser of the year is going to be quickly upon us. The event will be held on Sunday, January 17th from 12:01am to 11:59pm. We could use your help in a variety of ways. First...fundraising...Bike the Blizzard helps to fund sending 4-5 youth to the Youth Bike Summit every year. We could also use help getting the word out and riding the day of.
