Save Our Shop

SOS - Save Our Shop

The Cola Town Bike Collective is in danger of losing our location at 711 Elmwood, which puts our entire mission at risk. We were recently informed that our landlord is looking to sell the building we’ve called our home for almost half a decade. 

Our shop is central to the large number of people in our community that we serve. Over 90% of our clients are referred from services within 1.5 miles of our location, including Transitions, Oliver Gospel, Catholic Charities of the Midlands, Lutheran Services Carolinas, and many others. We serve many clients who do not have access to transportation without our assistance, many of whom walk to our shop. 

We are proud to launch our “Cola Town Bike Collective #SaveOurShop” Campaign to raise money to purchase 711 Elmwood and get necessary repairs done to secure the building and keep CTBC impactful as a nonprofit. 

We can continue to impact people most directly by being where the need is. 

We need YOUR help as we fight to stay here. This is where our clients are. This is where we can make the most change. 

All proceeds go directly to Cola Town Bike Collective and are tax-deductible. Naming opportunities are available at larger giving levels. Please contact colatownbikecollective@gmail.com to learn more.
