Each year, the Downtown Neighborhood Association presents community grants to worthy organizations. Two of our community grant recipients are involved in events this weekend benefiting organizations and causes that are important to our downtown neighborhood!
Cranksgiving is half bike ride, half food drive and a 100 percent fun way to spend a Saturday afternoon helping others.
When: Saturday, Nov. 19th at 1 p.m.
Meet at the Savannah Bicycle Campaign Headquarters
Registration for the ride starts at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 19 at Savannah Bicycle Campaign HQ (Corner of Henry and Lincoln streets). At registration, participants will receive a shopping list of items needed by Emmaus House. The challenge begins at 1:30 p.m. when riders roll out to shop by bike. Participants should pick up items from the shopping list without going over $15-20 price limit. This is not a race! Riders may compete by themselves or on teams. Prize packages will be awarded in the following categories:
What should you bring? First of all, you’ll need your bike and $15-20. We also suggest a helmet. If you’re planning on carrying groceries, you should bring a backpack or other cargo solution for your bike.
- Most Items Carried by a Single Person
- Most Stores Visited (receipts needed from each store)
- Best Team Effort
- Most Innovative Cargo Rig
- All participants must return to 1301 A Lincoln St. by 4 p.m. to tally up their purchases and enjoy food and beverages.
Cranksgiving benefits one of DNA's Grant Recipients, Emmaus House. The Savannah Bicycle Campaign (and you!) will be helping feed hungry people at Emmaus House. Founded in 1982 by a group of downtown churches, Emmaus House provides food and day services to the homeless and needy of Savannah. Breakfast is served at 8:30 a.m. Monday through Friday, fifty weeks each year.
Tickets available online here.
When: Saturday, November 19th, 10 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Where: THE OLD DAIRY FARM located at 2500 Tennessee Avenue, Savannah, GA 31404
