Help make Christmas a little bit better for young adults by donating a bike. The Bike Peddler is accepting donations on Saturday, December 1, from 11:00 to 1:00pm. In addition to bikes, locks, accessories, and money can also be donated.
The bike program is sponsored by the Assistance League of Salem, Auxiliary. The bikes are distributed to young adults who are transitioning out of foster care or young adults on the road to independence.
And while you're at it, consider emailing Citycouncil@cityofsalem.net to urge Councilors adopt, fund, and implement Bike and Walk Salem. Without a complete system of safe, comfortable, and connected bike routes, a new bike is less effective and more difficult as transportation than it needs to be.
