Operation Firefly Rolls On with Second Street Distribution
Team Firefly volunteers made our second street distribution a success on Thursday, November 15, 2012. Volunteers from our first distribution joined a new crew on Spring Street near 6th in downtown Los Angeles, just a block away from LACBC world headquarters. We’ve seen a lot more people riding on Spring Street since last year’s bike lane installation, so we decided it was a good location for round two of Operation Firefly. Within 90 minutes, Team Firefly had distributed lights and night-time safety information to 40 people who had been riding without lights. Everyone – volunteers and light recipients – had smiles on their faces when we were done for the evening. We’d like to thank all the Team Firefly volunteers who helped, with a special “thank you” to a group of students from the Crankheads Cycling Crew at Wilson High School, who rode together from Lincoln Heights to join us.
We’ve also been receiving donations and selling light sets in support of Operation Firefly. Thanks to all who have donated or bought lights. You can help Team Firefly continue to give out lights all winter by making a donation or purchasing a light set today. Click here for more details. Want to be a member of Team Firefly?
