Al-Maa'Uun Drop 7/31

We will be hosting a small bike event this coming FRIDAY afternoon 7/31 and doing a donation drop to Al-Maa'Uun, an organization based out of North Minneapolis that provides goods, services, and programs such as work and housing assistance to their neighbors in need. With the recent closures of Powderhorn Sanctuary, Pimento Relief Services, and most likely more to come, we are focusing our efforts on a few new (to us) organizations. We are hoping to build a lasting relationship with Al-Maa'Uun and be able to contribute to their needs regularly going forward.
We will meet at Bikes & Bites HQ at 11:45a and depart for Al-Maa'Uun at 12p on Monday. The bike ride will be approximately 20 miles round trip and we anticipate moving at a little bit quicker pace than our kickoff drop to CES. Please RSVP directly to us via email at if you plan to attend/bike with us so we can get a head count and estimate of the amount of supplies we'll be working with!  Please plan on wearing your mask while packing bikes and while unloading at Al-Maa'Uun.
In addition to the general list of supplies needed (you can find this on our website homepage), Al-Maa'Uun is in urgent need of a few specific items:
  • Conditioner (NEED LEVEL: HIGH!)
  • Painkillers - ibuprofen, tylenol, etc. (NEED LEVEL: HIGH!)
  • Pull ups - any size but especially 4T-5T (NEED LEVEL: HIGH!)
  • Sponges
  • Trash bags
  • Laundry detergent
  • Bleach (safety caps only)
  • Baby food
  • Flushable wipes
  • Incontinence pads
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Disinfectant spray/wipes
  • Disposable gloves
  • Fruit snacks/fruit cups/juice
  • Granola bars
  • Crackers
  • Healthy snacks
  • Hot & cold cereal
  • Peanut butter
  • Jelly
We apologize for the short notice, however, IC/CCs - if you can, please pick up/collect/push for these items this week! Bikers - if at all possible, please also bring supplies with you to the event on Friday! We have changed the original date of the bike drop from Monday 7/27 to FRIDAY 7/31 in the hopes of rounding up more bikers and donations! Please RSVP directly to our email at If you'd like to get involved with Bikes & Bites, please feel free to email us or DM us on social media @bikesandbitesmpls
