New this year:
Used Bicycle Drive with Morning Glory Cycling Club
Donate used, complete bicycles for refurbishing. My office is teaming up with the Morning Glory Cycling Club to support the MGCC/Gears Annual Bike Drive, now in its 5th year. With the support of Gears Bike Shop, MGCC has helped donate hundreds of refurbished bicycles to communities in need across the GTA. Last year our office helped connect MGCC and Gears to our very own TCHC Communities in our ward.

Bring your old bills, bank and credit card statements and other personal documents and have them shredded.
