Chávez Elementary plans Bike Swap on April 14

César Chávez Elementary School is putting a new twist on a popular annual event as it debuts a Bike Swap from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, April 14, at the school, 1221 Anderson Road.

Organizers are modeling the Bike Swap on the successful Davis High School Ski Swap, at which gently used ski/snow equipment and clothing are consigned or donated and purchased.

“Tell your friends, tell your neighbors — this is open to everyone,” says organizer Jill Bonner.

At the Bike Swap, visitors can:

* Sell their bike; Chávez will get 25 percent of the sale price;

* Donate their bike; Chávez will get 100 percent of the sale price;

* Buy a new used bike from the selection available.

“This is a great affordable way for growing kids to get the next size bike and great way for you to maybe make some money on your old bike, or at least donate it,” Bonner says. “Both adult and kid-size bikes are accepted — bike trailers, too!”

Donated bikes and the 25 percent commissions are tax-deductible.

Bikes may be dropped off at the César Chávez multipurpose room between 3 and 6 p.m. Saturday, April 13, or between 7 and 9 a.m. Sunday, April 14, the day of the swap.

Volunteers also are needed to help price bikes during drop-off times and to sell bikes during the event. For more information, contact Bonner at bonnerjill@gmail.com or 530-330-4315.
