Grace Community Church has been “gracing” Project ReCycle with monthly donations and volunteer hours for over a year now. Mark Donelson loves what Project ReCycle is all about- he personally got involved when the non-profit moved from the old warehouse to the 4th floor at Castle Rock Adventist Hospital. “We moved over a thousand bikes- it was a lot of work, but very rewarding. I was hooked that day,” said Mark.
“When AJ Stapleton was first starting out in his garage, our youth group helped with some smaller projects like making flyers and bracelets for marketing.” Mark also volunteered his time at one of last years Dream Bike Events… “I helped out as a mechanic, the program is so cool because the kids are working to earn their own bike.” On occasion, Mark will stop in at The Kickstand (where the bikes are refurbished) on Wednesday evenings and help work on the bikes. “I have an affinity for cycling- both rode biking and mountain biking,” said Mark. Working on bicycles for Project ReCycle has also helped him with fixing his own bike as well.
“Our church has adopted Project ReCycle as a local ministry to partner with and help them out financially and as volunteers. We enjoy it immensely and want to continue it for a long time. I am planning on being at this years Dream Bike Event,” said Mark. “Looking forward to it.”
Project ReCycle thanks you Grace Community Church for all that you do. You are part of what makes this non-profit what it is today!
