Let’s Fill The Shelves Weekend Rides

Come ride this weekend to support the Putney Foodshelf. This time of year all of the folks at the Putney Foodshelf can use our help as they try to make sure everyone is well provided for during the holiday season.  They will be upping their efforts over the next few weeks to see that no one in need.  On Sautrday 14th and Sunday 15th, Hot Wheelz Cycle Studio is hoping to fill the house, not only with riders, but with some great donations of food items as well.

The foodshelf is in need of a variety of non-perishable items, such as healthy canned goods.  A general rule of thumb is to try to donate only sutff that you would eat yourself and that isn’t out of date.
