The fantastic #YEGBIKE group, which you can join on Facebook and Twitter, is organizing a Christmas Turkey Drop for B's Diner. Please join if you're able! The following message comes from Alan, a member of the informal group:
For the last 13 years B’s Diner on Whyte Ave at 10037 82 Ave has served a Christmas dinner for about 300 less fortunate Edmonton citizens.
With the recent economy there’s need to serve up to 500 hungry people, at a time when they are receiving less donations than usual.
#yegbike is a fun crew of local cyclists who met online. Eventually we started talking about how we could give something back to the communities we ride through, and that led to our 'Two Wheels Good’ projects.
We bike outside by choice. We can afford to eat and stay warm. That’s not true for everyone we see during our rides, so we’re excited to deliver turkeys to B’s to keep our fellow Edmontonians warm and well fed.
Who: You and all your turkey-bearing, bike-riding friends
When: Saturday Nov 28 at 1:30 p.m.
Where: Ezio Faraone Park (north end of the High Level Bridge, west side), we’ll then ride together taking our food donations the short ride to B’s Diner 10037 82 Ave. The paths are cleared by city crews and it’s mostly flat.
What: You, your bike, and a frozen turkey to donate. Any sides, items for hamper stuffing, sauce or extras are good too!
To do on Saturday:
- Buy frozen turkey/ham etc
- Strap to bicycle
- Deliver to B's Diner
