Pizza Work Party – Join Us!

Have you ever wanted to help promote a walking and bike friendly Alameda? Tuesday, February 9 is your chance! On that date, we are hosting a map stuffing work party. We’re eager to get our new maps out into the community, but need to add our membership insert prior to distribution.

We’re looking for 10 to 15 volunteers to help with this one-time volunteer job. It’s an easy and fast way to give back to Bike Walk Alameda. You’ll be joining a community of like-minded BWA supporters for a few hours of map stuffing. We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, February 9 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m at Chamber of Commerce office – 2215-A South Shore Center (behind the Trader Joe’s).
