The Louisville Bicycle Club is partnering again this holiday season with the Cabbage Patch Settlement House.
Our club has a long history of making Louisville a healthier,
happier and more bicycle friendly community. Now we find ourselves asking how
can the club and individual members make a difference this year for children
and families that are in need this Christmas. In 1910 a resident of Old Louisville
founded the Cabbage Patch Settlement House. It is a local non- profit that for
over a hundred years has helped at risk children and families be more self
sufficient. The help is offered in a variety of programs that impact the
family’s economic, educational, emotional, social and spiritual potential and
well being. In addition to these programs every December CPSH has a “Christmas
Partner Program” whereby individuals, private and public organizations can
donate money. The dollars go toward the purchase of food, clothing and gifts.
The club is partnering with CPSH this year and we’re asking members to consider
joining us in making Christmas a little more jolly for a child or family in
need. If the spirit of Christmas giving
moves you to this great cause you can make a make a donation directly to the
club. You can also write a check if that is your
To get things rolling the club is starting the drive by
making a donation of $500.00. Thank you for considering making a difference
this December for many families in our community.
To celebrate this season of giving please join us for a
special ride led by Michael Crawford on Saturday, December 2nd at 11:00 AM where we
will make our donation to the organization. The ride location start is Fante's Coffeehouse at 2501 Grinstead Drive. You can get all the details of the ride from the LBC calendar.
The deadline for donating is November 30th.
