The First United Methodist Church of Melrose is collecting donated bicycles to support Bikes Not Bombs. Bicycles can be dropped off on the church lawn (645 Main St.) from 10 am-2 pm on Saturday, April 29. Bikes Not Bombs asks for a $10 per bike donation to help with transportation and refurbishing costs.
You may also drop off your bike Mondays through Thursdays during the office hours of 9 am-1 pm, or call the church office at 781-662-7060 to arrange for a FUMC volunteer to come to your location for bike pick-up.
The church will also be holding a car wash during the bike drop off (Sat. Apr. 29, 10 am-2 pm) to raise money for Bikes Not Bombs, in effort to reach its goal of raising $10,000 for Bikes Not Bombs this year.
