Bike Clark County raises $20,000

The Columbian

HOUGH — Bike Clark County, a nonprofit bicycle repair shop, raised $20,000 during Give More 24!, a day of fundraising on Sept. 24 for nonprofit organizations across Southwest Washington. “Give More 24! went surprisingly well for us this year, despite COVID-19. We usually host a gathering in our bike shop the night of the event, so we weren’t sure what to expect,” program manager Lisa Giacchino said. The organization had matching donations from the Hatton Charitable Fund, Bader’s Beer and Wine Supply, as well as an anonymous donor. “The funds donated this year will be used to maintain our High School Program, Bike 2 Leadership, our new Middle School Bike 2 Leadership Program and aid in enhancing our Earn a Bike Program,” Giacchino said. The Bike 2 Leadership program, which helps provide at-risk high school students with leadership skills through the independence a bicycle provides, has four students this fall because of the pandemic.
