Volunteer Opportunities during COVID19

The Gear Hub needs your help, and we’ve worked on some strategies to invite volunteers again while keeping everyone safe.

Volunteer Application

Projects:

  • Eradicating Knotweed! We have large and small garden clippers and a weed burner to provide. Any other tools you bring from home are a great bonus!
  • Building Kids Bikes for Programs (SS/ Coaster brake) – We need help with our kids bikes! These are our “single speed with coaster brake” types – simple, but experience working on bikes is needed. We’re hoping to build 60 by the end of July 2020, so we can redistribute working bikes to kids who need them!
  • Bike Recycling / Disassembly – Some of our donations need to be taken apart to be used as individual components.

Guidelines:

  • All volunteer shifts and activities are going to be outside to minimize the risk of spreading the coronavirus.
  • If you have a member of your household/family that wants to come work with you, they’re welcome as well!
  • Shifts are 90 minutes each
  • Bring your mask!
  • We will have a designated work stand and toolkit for you to use outside, along with disposable gloves and hand sanitizer.
  • Volunteer projects are self-directed right now – please only sign up for projects requiring mechanical knowledge if you are comfortable working on bikes independently!

How It Works:

  • Follow this link to a calendar with available shifts: SIGN UP HERE
  • Pick your favorite time to come in!
  • There will be a text box for you to type a few notes in. If you’re interested in a particular project, please write it there.
  • If you have to cancel, no worries – there is a link in your confirmation email that will allow you to do this quickly and easily, but please let us know!
  • If you can’t get a time slot you want, keep checking back!
