Temporary Warehouse Space Needed


Each year, LAAC assembles, stages and distributes hundreds of bicycles for our Christmas Wish Program.  The donated space we used the past few years is no longer available, so we need a new location to assemble and store these bicycles.  We only need this space for a few weeks as we prepare for our Christmas party in December.

  • Needed mid-November to mid-December (approximately 3 weeks)

  • Must be secure

  • Minimum 2000 sq ft

  • Evening and weekend access required

  • In Lodi or close by


If you have a space, or know someone who does, please contact us at 209-333-1056 or
