People have been asking how they can help out. I posted about some ways you can give love and support, your time to the shop, and financial help by spending money at the shop. I understand not everyone has money to give, but maybe you can give time and sweat equity instead:
EXTREME Makeover Workday at Sunrise Cyclery
Monday, September 6, 2010
Starting at 9am, ending when we want to stop
The shop is going to be closed and we want to do some much-needed work. This is more than we can get done in a day, but if a bunch of people show up, who knows?
Toting frames to the basement
Cleaning- sweeping, glass cleaning, arranging the floor space
Possibly some demolition and construction
You will be getting dirty. Please bring water. BYOB if that's your thing, but you will not be allowed to operate power tools if you've been drinking!
We will provide some snacks and sandwiches and some righteous tunes.
If someone were to bring a grill, that would be awesome. Otherwise, please leave a comment/ email me if you are planning on coming on Monday, so I can be sure to bring enough sammies.
Please consider participating, I would love to see a large contingent of Grease Rag/ women/ trans/ femmes sprucing up the shop and doing work. This is your chance to give back to Jamie and Sunrise Cyclery- If you've enjoyed the space or gotten some work done for cheap, come hang out with us while putting in some labor. Giving feels good!
