Bike Drive

Bike Drive

St. Raymond’s St. Vincent de Paul Society is organizing a Bike Drive the weekend of April 18th and 19th. We will be collecting used but usable bicycles of all types and sizes to be fixed up and donated to day laborers in Redwood City and to farm workers in Pescadero. These workers often have no transportation to their job sites. Your used bicycle donations will help family breadwinners keep their jobs.

Bicycles will be collected on Saturday, April 18 and will be readied for delivery on Sunday, April 19. We will gratefully accept all types of bicycles (e.g. street, mountain, racing, bmx and children’s). If you are unavailable to bring your bikes to donate on Saturday, April 18, we will accept your bike on Saturday, April 11 or by special arrangement.

We also need volunteers for the Bike Drive. On April 18 and 19 we will need help greeting donors, receiving donations, and providing receipts, and tracking repairs. We will also need help on April 11 for those unable to make their bike donations on April 18.

On April 19 we will need help readying the bicycles for use. This will involve cleaning bicycles, oiling chains, and fixing flat tires. We need you even if you have no bike repair experience. Several professional repair people will train you and will be on hand to help us. This is a great opportunity to learn bike maintenance while supporting a local, worthy cause.

Please sign-up for bike donations and volunteering at the door leading to the Parish Center after each mass today. Future bulletins will provide additional details and opportunities to sign up. If you have questions, please contact Anita Ochieano ( or Colleen Foraker (

We hope you will help us to help others by donating bicycles and perhaps volunteering a few hours to help with what will be a fun day of fellowship.

Stations of the Cross will be every Friday at 12:10 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. SOUP SUPPERS-This Lent bring your family to pray the Stations of the Cross at 6:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Stations will be followed by a simple but delicious supper of soup and bread in the Parish Hall. St. Vincient de Paul will be hosting this week.
Come join us every Friday during Lent at 6:30 p.m. in the Church to walk with Jesus and then eat with friends as he did.
