Container Loading to El Salvador [6/28/2024 to 6/30/2024]

June 28 - June 30

A man hands a bike to a second man, who is standing at the opening of a shipping container with hundreds of bikes inside of it.

Bikes Not Bombs is scheduled to ship a container of bicycles and parts to our partner El Centro Salvadoreño de Tecnología Apropiada (CESTA) in El Salvador Friday June 28th to Sunday June 30th and we need your help!

Join us on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at our warehouse in Dorchester (10 Harvard Street in Dorchester, MA 02124) to help us with this extremely important work. Volunteer roles will consist of stripping bikes, sorting parts, inventory tracking and counting, and much more. Bikes Not Bombs staff will be present to guide and direct volunteers. More information can be found below. Sign up here to volunteer!

Location: The Bikes Not Bombs warehouse at 10 Harvard Street in Dorchester, MA 02124.

Date and Times: Friday June 28th through Sunday June 30th, during any of the following times:

  • 9 AM to 12:30 PM
  • 12:30 PM to 4 PM

We welcome all people to help for any amount of time, and volunteers may register for as many shifts as they are available.

What to Expect: Volunteers will arrive and be assigned certain roles or to perform specific tasks. You will be lifting bicycles throughout the day. We advise you wear closed-toed shoes and clothing you are not worried about getting dirty. Dress appropriately for the weather as work will be performed outside and the warehouse does not have climate control. Bring your own work gloves if you have them. Food will be provided for volunteers!
