Get ready for the very first Wash West Bike day! Come meet representatives from a number of cycling organizations like Indego, the National Youth Bike Council, Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia, Agile Rascal Bicycle Touring Theatre, and the Philly Critical Mass bike ride! Get everything you need for a bike wash- we'll have the water on at the park, and soap, brushes, rags, etc to use. Suggested donation $2. Bring the kiddos (all ages welcome!) any time during the event to decorate their bikes or scooters in preparation for a Bike Parade that kicks off at 3:30! This is a day to recognize how lucky we are in Wash West to have cycling infrastructure like bike lanes, and remind ourselves about cycling safety whether we are biking, or driving. More Bike Fair participants to be announced! Are you a member of a cycling organization that would like to have a table at the bike fair? No cost for tables. DM us, or email washwestkatie@gmail.com. ... See MoreSee Less

Can you help this family in urgent need? Non-profit organization HOSTS for HOSPITALS is desperately trying to help this family from Palestine. The little girl is being treated at CHOP, and has been away from her mom for a while. Dad and girl have been at Ronald McDonald House, but they cannot accommodate the family. I am told that they may stop treatment if they do not find housing! A guest bedroom, an Airbnb, empty apartment, inlaw suite, any private, available space could help this family. Leaving town for a week? They could stay at your place! Any amount of time you could host may help! To volunteer and find out exactly how this works please contact Cathy DavisOutreach Coordinatorcell 215 687 1022Lodging@hostsforhospitals.orgHOSTS for HOSPITALSOr send the WSWCA a message and we will get you connected!
