The Wish Project of Lowell, a privately-funded home and baby goods bank, helping the needy gain independence and thrive, by procuring donations and partnering with other area agencies, announces the third annual Bike for Beds Poker Run benefit to be held on May 18th at 10:15 a.m. Area motorcyclists are invited to ride more than 45 miles from Dracut to Auburn, N.H. to Hudson, N.H. to help buy beds for families in need.
“On any given night, more than 100 local children sleep on the floor because families cannot afford to buy beds,” said Donna Hunnewell, Founder/Executive Director of the Wish Project. “The Bikes for Beds benefit will provide needy families in the Greater Lowell area with safe, comfortable places to sleep.”
Registration ($20) will begin at the Joker’s Lounge (135 Stewart St., Dracut) at 9:30 a.m.
Breakfast will be served and food will be provided throughout the ride. Additionally, participants will enjoy raffles, music and more.
