Golden Pliers is a drop-off site for this rain gear drive, sponsored by Women Bike/The Street Trust and benefitting p:ear Bike Works. We’re all about getting more people on their bikes and we’re thrilled to partner with these organizations in this effort. Help p:ear Bike Works and Rosewood stay warm and dry this winter! Bring in clean, new or gently worn: COATS, RAIN GEAR, and anything that helps you keep warm and dry on a bike!
*High need for waterproof pants, jackets, and shells*
All donated items will go to p:ear Bike Works to benefit p:ear youth and Rosewood community members. No one in need will be turned away but p:ear will take extra efforts to connect women, trans, femme, and gender non-conforming community members with donations. p:ear builds positive relationships with homeless and transitional youth through education, art and recreation to affirm personal worth and create more meaningful and healthier lives.
*If you want to donate but can not easily access these locations, direct message Women Bike or email firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate an alternative.
