Volunteer of the Month – Gary Shapiro

Gary first found out about Bikes Not Bombs after donating bikes he rescued from the side of the road! Since then, Gary has become a regular Thursday Night Volunteer. He most enjoys flattening bikes as it gives him a chance to see some of the really interesting and unique bikes we receive. When asked why he continues to volunteer Gary said, “I like to picture someone taking that bike and using it, instead of it going into the trash. It makes a difference.” Thank you Gary!
