Chilliwack Restorative Justice gearing up for annual bike sale

Sale will be held May 27 at Bernard elementary, with proceeds going to prevention programs

It’s that time again.

The Chilliwack Restorative Justice and Youth Advocacy Association is planning their next Spring Bike Auction, to be held on Saturday, May 27.

The sale is annually held at Bernard elementary, with money going toward supporting the programs offered by Restorative Justice. More than 100 bikes have been donated to the organization by the City of Chilliwack and the Chilliwack community. There is always a wide variety of bikes available; some are in good shape while others will need some work and repairs.

The bike preview will begin at 9 a.m. with the auction starting at 10 a.m. Cash or credit cards are acceptible forms of payment when purchasing a bike.

“I am very happy with the support we receive for this fundraiser and it is a great way to give back to the community,” says program director Leanna Kemp says.

Guywires Mobile Cycle Tech will be on site again offering bike inspections for a donation of $5. All proceeds will be donated back to Restorative Justice preventative programs.

The Chilliwack Restorative Justice and Youth Advocacy Association is a volunteer based non-profit organization aimed at fostering a safe and caring community. The mandate of the organization is to bring youth offenders and victims together in order to discuss criminal incidents and to find ways to repair the harm caused.

Since their inception in 1998, they have provided restorative services to over 4,500 individuals and have recovered over $120,000.00 in restitution.
