Donations Wanted

Team Tree Farm will be at the MMBA Annual Expo collecting donated items for local charities. There will be a drop off for the donated items at the Southeast Chapter booth.

First they are collecting donated coats.

Second, they are seeking new and used-but-not-worn-out bike parts for Back Alley Bikes in Detroit. The donated parts will be used in their build-a-bike program for local youths. In this program, kids are taught how to repair a bike, fix a bike using the donated parts, and get to keep the finished product.

If you have any questions, contact HockeyDaddy.
