Keystone is expanding their services. Youth Expres is now a program of Keystone Community Services. For nearly 75 years, Keystone Community Services has offered programming that connects people of all ages in our community with resources and services that enable them to thrive and be engaged in their community.... and that includes youth.
You may have already seen or even visited the Express Bike Shop and Express Yourself clothing store on the corner of Selby Avenue and Dunlap Street.
What can you do to help? Drop off your used bike at any BankCherokee location by Monday, July 15th.
Are tricycles accepted? Yes!
What if the bike is in tough shape? No problem - Youth Express will use those bikes for spare parts.
What if I would like a receipt for charitable donation purposes? No problem, Ask at the desk for details and we will send you a receipt.
Why did Keystone decide to merge with this non-profit? Youth Express has a wonderful reputation (and "brand") in the community. Unfortunately, for every three youth that want to join the program only one can be accepted. Keystone plans to expand this program so more kids can participate and also push it to the North End of St. Paul.
If I do not have a bike to donate, what else could I do to help? Tell anyone looking to purchase a refurbished bike (or purchase quality used clothing) to stop by either store. Also, the bike shop provides bike tune-ups!
We have a good start, help us reach our goal!!!
Bring in a bike by July 15th to donate!
