While we are thankful for the donations we continue to receive, we want to make sure that every bicycle we give to a family is as like-new as we can make it. That means that if it’s closer to a junker than something you would give to a family member, it’s probably better off being recycled at a community depot. Watch this video for a quick sum-up of the shape in which we need our donations:
BIG Happy Mother’s Day to all the fantastic moms out there!
REAL MEN Hamilton would like to wish all moms the very best for Mother’s Day. At every Bike Drive, and in everything we do in our city, we meet many loving and hardworking moms who are there for their children and families. From supporting your children as they start to ride a bike, to face painting and entertaining, to helping us with bike donations, you are much appreciated!
Happy Mother’s Day!
One of the greatest things we can do is give to others. Students throughout our great city have always shown how much the gift of a bike and new helmet means to them. As soon as the seat height is adjusted, helmet fitted, and responsible adult present to guide them, OFF they GO!
Hi everyone, we at REAL MEN hope you are doing everything you can to keep your friends and family safe during this unprecedented time in our history. For all the fear out there, all the harsh realities in which we find ourselves, our mission does not change. We are here to serve others. For the great many of us, we serve in this time best by heeding the advice of leading health officials – practicing social distancing, staying at home unless absolutely necessary, and maintaining good hygiene practices. One of the worst things about this world pandemic is that transmission has a large window of time, and the virus can use asymptomatic people as carriers. Stay safe, and unless travel is essential, staying home is one of the best ways you can serve others in this time.
That being said, there are those out there who are at risk – not just from contracting this sickness, but from being left behind. The basic needs of life that were being met by the Hamilton Food Bank, and by REAL MEN volunteers, did not suddenly go away. On the contrary – many of those meeting those needs had to go home. The Food Bank still needs us, and if you feel a call to serve those underprivileged in this time, we can surely use you. We want to minimize risk: please don’t consider helping if you are:
The needs are real – contact us through Living Hope offices 905-575-5400 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to help.
Look out for each other!
