We're very excited to be partnering with the Sanctuary Supply Depot for our next group bike drop event! The Sanctuary Depot is the central supply center serving the Minneapolis Sanctuary Movement to provide basic needs to unhoused folks living in encampments throughout the city. We are extremely passionate about their cause and the work they are doing. You can learn more about them at their Facebook and Instagram pages. If you are unfamiliar with the Minneapolis Sanctuary Movement and absolute urgency of this matter, please consider taking the time to read these articles via Star Tribune and Unicorn Riot.
As we move into fall and winter, our unhoused neighbors are facing continued sanctuary evictions by the city of Minneapolis. They are in urgent need of cold weather gear and basic supplies. You can drop donations off at Bikes & Bites headquarters (please email or direct message for address) or your nearest Community Captain's home. If you'd like us to pick up supplies on your behalf, you can also Venmo us @bikesandbitesmpls. You can also donate money directly to the Sanctuary Supply Depot's PayPal account.
We will deliver supplies to Sanctuary Supply Depot on Sunday, October 11th at 2pm. If you'd like to join us, please reach out - we'd love to have you!
