Joel's Painting Sponsors Youth Bike Workshop!
We here at The Common Wheel are excited to announce a partnership with Joel’s Painting! Joel’s Painting is sponsoring Youth Bike Workshop for the 2022-2023 school year.
Joel and his team see the impact that Youth Bike Workshop has on the Lancaster community and they jumped at the chance to fund the program for the year. We are grateful for their support to enable us to have safer kids on our streets riding safer bikes!
Show Your Pride!
We are THRILLED to unveil our brand new PRIDE! water bottles! Thanks to funding from a PA Pride grant administered by our friends at the LGBTQ Coalition we were able to hire the amazing queer graphic designer Frankie Reed (he/it/they), a senior at Pennsylvania College of Art and Design to create this limited edition bottle.
But that’s not all, folks…we are donating $1.50 of each water bottle sold to the Coalition’s HEART program, a fully-affirming homeless outreach and housing program aimed at assisting one of our most vulnerable populations, LGBTQ+ folks. We are proud to support the incredible work the coalition does, and we hope you’ll stop by and grab one of these awesome water bottles before they are gone!
Can’t stop in for a bottle? Find them on our Ebay site!
Donate Your Old Bike TODAY!
Did you get a new bike for the holidays? Do you have an old bike that is just longing for a new person to ride it once more? Consider donating it to us! Your bike could be used for the Spring Bike Fling, or Earn-a-Bike. It might end up in the hands of an adult in need of essential transportation, or on our sales floor to inspire someone to ditch their car and choose the bicycle as their primary form of transportation.
Choose to make an impact by donating your bicycle today! While we prefer to accept donations at the King Street Co-op & Donation Center, we are happy to assist you at the Queen Street Community Center & Shop if that is easier for you.
Earn-a-Bike is accepting applications for 2023. If you know a youth aged 11-21 get them signed up today. Click here for more information!
