SUPPORT FULL CYCLE - BRING IN FOOD DONATIONS & BIKES/BIKE PARTS

 

Student Council will again be supporting the efforts of our local community service partner, Full Cycle. We will be collecting food items from Monday May 18 - Wednesday May 27  to help them support the needs of those who are hungry in our community. 

 

In addition we will be hosting a "Field Bike Rally" on Friday May 29. If you are cleaning out your garage this spring and have bikes or bike parts that you would like to donate, please bring them in or ride them to school on May 29 and Full Cycle will pick them up to use for their homeless youth apprenticeship program.  Every bike donated will help Full Cycle accomplish their mission to reduce youth homelessness in our community. Our goal is to collect 50 bikes.  You may view a video for Full Cycle with the link below.  It explains their mission and ways they serve homeless youth in south Minneapolis.
