Bicycle sale to raise money for Santa shop

Denver nonprofit helps families in need buy toys for their children during holidays

Posted

The nonprofit Denver Santa Claus Shop is selling more than 100 brand new, three-speed cruiser bikes to help raise money to provide children with toys during the holidays.

All the bikes came from a donor who is liquidating its cruiser bike inventory, and proceeds from the sale will buy new toys for more than 10,000 local children in need, according to a news release.

The sale will take place from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7 in the parking lot south of Cube Smart Self Storage at 1090 W. Hampden Ave., Englewood.

Bikes are available for a minimum $100 donation to the Santa shop. Cash, credit or debit cards will be accepted at the sale. Each bike wholesales for about $350 and features 26-inch wheels, high-end Shimano gears, front and rear drum brakes and lights, solid tires and anti-rust paint.  Because they were made for bike-sharing, these are sturdy, high-quality bikes.

Denver Santa Claus Shop is an 89-year-old, volunteer-run, nondenominational nonprofit whose mission is A Toy for Every Girl & Boy. The organization sets up a temporary toy store each December where qualified families can shop, choosing toys for their children ages newborn through 11 years old.
