Rag & Bones is committed to providing 20 Earn a Bike program openings to Richmond City residents this year. Here’s how it works:
-15 hours of work = $150 shop credit
-Shop credit MUST be put towards a bicycle, if credit earned exceeds the value of bicycle wanted, the remainder may be used however the participant wishes, but is not cash transferable.
–Upon completion, each participant gets lights, a lock, and proof of ownership
What sort of work is needed?
- Much of the work we need help doing is basic donations organizing, parts salvaging, kid’s bicycle repair and giveaway, general bicycle repair and sale.
- Some other needs could be flyering all over town to advertise events and programs, picking up small donations, delivering small donations, general errand running, and especially graphic design, and more.
You are eligible if
- You live within city limits – if you don’t have stable housing, please direct us to someone who can vouch for your general proximity; all details will remain confidential.
- You have read or have had our anti-oppression policy read to you by a volunteer, and agree to comply with it.
- You sign up in person.
- Please remember that every bicycle we DON’T sell for money, is a bicycle that ISN’T paying our growing rent, so please be honest about the level of your need.
