LAPD officers paying for helmets for minors, out of pocket
I got the Facebook message from “Heart CM”, the owner of the LA Critical Mass Group:
A couple of Los Angeles Police Department Officers who support our efforts to make LA Critical Mass rides a positive event, have individually come out of pocket and given Los Angeles Critical Mass over $1600.00 worth of new helmets for riders of Los Angeles Critical Mass who can not afford a helmet and are… under the age of 18.
These helmets are new. There are a variety of sizes and designs.
If you want a helmet, send an email to gear@LACriticalMass.org
Only those selected to get a helmet will receive instructions with the time and address to pick up the helmet on Friday March 25, so it can be worn on the ride. Be sure to check spam or bulk email in case your reply ends up there.
Note: there are a limited number of helmets so we can not promise everyone who sends an email will receive a helmet. The rider must be present at the place and time within the email on Friday March 25 or the helmet will be given out to another rider.
We are all volunteers and eager to continue to make LA Critical Mass better for all riders. We have opportunities to assist before and during rides. You’ll not only have fun, but it looks good on a resume for college and employment. We hope you’ll want to help us help others. To assist send an email to: volunteer@LACriticalMass.org
