As if to prove the world is indeed full of heartless savages, the Hub—Bellingham’s much-beloved nonprofit community bike shop—was robbed last month. Thousands of dollars in tools, inventory, cash and the personal belongings of devoted Hub staffers were stolen.
And when the Hub gets ripped off, the greater community as a whole feels the loss—which is why the greater community has shown a strong interest in helping the Hub right this wrong. Besides, we don’t much like heartless savages around here.
If you’d like to help out the Hub, it’s as simple as showing up to the Shakedown on Fri., May 18 (the same day as Bike to Work and School Day and the Hub’s yearly pancake feed) where Rhombus (the band for whom every show is their last), So Adult, Totalizer, and the Bellingham Circus Guild will be on hand to entertain you in the name of raising money so that the Hub can continue to do what it does so very well.
Strike a blow against heartless savages and win one for the Hub.
The Hub benefit takes place Fri., May 18 at the Shakedown, 1212 N. State St. Cost: $5-$10. More info: http://www.shakedownbellingham.com
