Helping with Furniture – Helping with Bikes is looking for a dynamic volunteer to lead an initiative that will ensure everyone who receives a refurbished bicycle may also obtain a new helmet and lock at no, or very low, cost.
Helping With Bikes provides over 200 fully refurbished bikes per year to individuals and families that are making “new beginnings” all around our great city. Helmets are an important part of cycling safety (and legally required for those 16 years old and under). For safety reasons, we are unable to give away donated used helmets. A sturdy lock is also unfortunately necessary for protecting the donated bikes from theft.
We need someone with the interest, skills, drive and energy to research and forge partnerships with other related charitable initiatives, as well as with commercial suppliers of bicycle helmets and locks to make our work complete.
If you believe bikes can change lives and communities, and are interested in honing your marketing and partner development skills within a great local charity, you have found your home. For additional information please contact us as at: volunteer@hwfottawa.org.

Aidons avec des meubles – Aidons avec des vélos est à la recherche d'un ou d'une bénévole dynamique pour être à la tête d'une initiative qui nous permettrait de remettre aux personnes qui reçoivent une bicyclette remise à neuf par notre équipe non seulement un casque mais également un cadenas de bicyclette, et ce, sans frais, sinon à peu de coûts.
Aidons avec des vélos offre plus de 200 bicyclettes remises en bon état par année aux personnes et aux familles qui prennent «un nouveau départ » partout dans notre belle grande ville. Les casques sont un élément important pour ce qui est de la sécurité à vélo (sans oublier qu'il est obligatoire chez les personnes âgées de 16 ans ou moins). Pour des raisons de sécurité, nous ne pouvons pas donner des casques usagés. Par ailleurs, il serait essentiel d'avoir un bon cadenas pour protéger du vol les bicyclettes que nous donnons.
Nous sommes à la recherche d'une personne qui a du cœur au ventre et les compétences nécessaires pour forger des partenariats avec d'autres initiatives de bienfaisance, ainsi qu'avec des fournisseurs commerciaux de casques et de cadenas.
Si vous croyez fermement qu'une bicyclette peut réellement changer la vie et la communauté et si vous aimeriez mettre à profit votre savoir-faire en marketing et en développement de partenariats au sein d'un incroyable organisme de bienfaisance, vous êtes à la bonne place!
