Friends on bikes, it’s that time of year again — time for our annual bike powered food drive, Cranksgiving! Time to pedal from grocery store to grocery store, collecting pounds of food for donation and bringing cheer to many a Thanksgiving table.
We're doing a socially distanced version this year so the plan is simple. Please bring your donations to the Raleigh Rescue Mission at 314 East Hargett Street. Volunteers be set up in the small fenced lot to the left of the building. Drop off will be contactless and outdoors.
Raleigh Rescue Mission is accepting drop offs on three different days:
Friday, November 20th, from 3pm to 6pm
Saturday, November 21st, from 10am to 1pm
Sunday, November 22nd, from 3pm to 6pm.
As usual, donations will be weighed and as added incentive, Oaks & Spokes will match your donations to Raleigh Rescue Mission dollar for pound for the first 500 pounds.
This year, Raleigh Rescue Mission especially needs the following in order to make 1300 meals for families in need:
Canned Green Beans
Canned Cranberry Sauce
Other important needs throughout the year are:
Hygiene & Medication Items – lotion, deodorant, chapstick, shampoo, conditioner, ibuprofen, Tylenol, Kleenex
Clothing – underwear (especially larger sizes), shower shoes, baby & toddler shoes
Nonperishable Food Items – Breakfast items (individual cereals, granola bars, etc.), snack foods (packaged crackers, chips, etc.), bottled water
If you are unable to participate in the ride this year, please consider donating directly through https://www.raleighrescue.org/.
