Summer officially begins this Sunday, and as we say goodbye to spring, UBP thanks everyone who volunteered, donated and participated in our programs during spring 2015. We had a busy season with bike drives, Wilmington Grand Prix, guest bar tending and art gallery events. We’re excited for our recent grant awarded from the Laffey-McHugh Foundation and look forward to this summer! We encourage everyone to join our mailing list and follow us on facebook and Twitter for announcements. Stay active and wear your helmets!
Thank you Mala Galleria for teaming up with us for the bike drive this weekend! And thank you to everyone who assisted with this event and everyone that donated to help the Wilmington community! It was great to see everyone’s willingness to help and we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day.
Urban Bike Project is excited to announce that we’ve received a $15,000 grant from the Laffey-McHugh Foundation! We’re looking forward to growing our organization and the services we offer to the community with help from this grant. Thanks so much to the folks at Laffey-McHugh and everyone who helped make this happen!
Come and donate to our bicycle drive with Mala Galleria in Kennett Square, PA this Saturday, June 20th from 1-4 pm
Drop off your unneeded bicycles and bike accessories at Mala Galleria. Donations will be either given away to adults in need of transportation but unable to afford a bicycle, used for our Earn-A-Bike program, or sold to generate income to support our other programs. Our greatest need is mountain bikes and hybrids of all sizes, but we accept donations of all kinds of bicycles in any condition! Leave your name and email address, and we will mail your tax deductible receipt to you!
Bring your donations to:
Mala Galleria: 206 East State Street
Kennett Square Phone (202) 501-6548
