NFCC Santa Shop Bikes

Nearly 150 volunteers gathered on Saturday, December 3, 2012 to polish and shine nearly 550 bicycles donated for North Fulton Community Charities’ Santa Shop. The bikes will be given as holiday gifts to people through the charity this month.  Check out some of the great photos. And Check out the photo gallery at Neighbor Newspapers.

This was the fifth year for the annual bicycle drive, which collects tricycles, mountain bikes, road bikes and scooters from neighborhoods in a three-county area (Forsyth, Gwinnett and Fulton).  Among the volunteers on Saturday were close to 30 mechanics who transformed many of the two-wheeled and three-wheeled vehicles into pristine condition for area children.  Ten members of Bike Alpharetta (bikealpharetta.org) also participated as a service project for the new advocacy group.


Johns Creek Baptist Church and PricewaterhouseCoopers donated 200 new bicycles for the program. Sponsors included Alpha Bikes, Reality Bikes, Performance Bicycle and Roswell Bicycles.   Volunteers were treated to a lunch of hot dogs and a ‘Big flipping Burger’, courtesy of Rob Ciaciura of SailingGrate.com.  THANK YOU 10 members of Bike Alpharetta for spending much of  your Saturday repairing/cleaning bicycles!
