2016 Community Give Back.  Members of All of Us or None, an organization that supports rights of formerly imprisoned people, and Legal Services for Prisoners with Children gave away about 100 new bicycles to children of imprisoned people.  Each child got a bike, a helmet, and lunch, wrote thank you notes to the imprisoned parent who arranged the gift, and got a photo taken showing the child/children with new bikes.  A print of the photo is sent inside for one parent, and to the house for the rest of the family.
Annual Bike Give-Back by All Of Us or None, an organization of previously incarcerated people, with a lot of other volunteer help.  Every year AUON gives away bicycles to children of people currently incarcerated.

Annual Community Giveback

December 10-11, 2021

This event requires the caregiver to pre-register by Nov. 20th, 2021
All children must be accompanied by an adult.

All of Us or None, a project of LSPC, hosts the annual Community Giveback, In Memory of Robert Moody, community activist extraordinaire.

The Giveback is a way for children, whose parents are in jail or prison, to receive gifts in the name of their incarcerated parent. The event has served the community for 22 consecutive years. The children take photos with their bikes and we send them to their incarcerated loved ones. The day also includes a BBQ lunch for everyone, face painting, and a testimonial table where the children write messages or draw pictures for their incarcerated family member. Everyone involved has an absolutely great time!
