Community Volunteers Needed for Bike Build-Up Day

Local firefighters will donate a helmet for each bicycle assembled for needy children

It’s that time of year again to come out and spread a little Christmas cheer — by helping assemble 700 bicycles for needy children.

This year’s bike build-up day will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 4 at 329 Vereda Del Ciervo in Goleta.

Many volunteers are needed to help assemble the bicycles that are contained in two tractor-trailer rigs. Last year, hundreds of community members showed up for the event and assembled 650 bikes, which were then given to local charities.

With each bike, firefighters with the Santa Barbara County and city fire departments will donate a safety helmet.

Please join local firefighters and help support this worthy cause.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
