Kid’s Bike Swap
Once a year in June kids have the opportunity to trade in that bike they have outgrown and get a bike that fits them. Kids donate their old bike and receive a voucher for the value to be redeemed towards another bike Sharing Wheels has refurbished. Children must be accompanied by parent or guardian. Watch our website for details of upcoming swap.
Kudos go out to all the volunteers who helped with another year of Christmas House. Eighty kids bikes were refurbished and donated to this great non-profit in 2012.
Each fall, Sharing Wheels contributes refurbished children’s bicycles to another non-profit, Christmas House. From 50 to 150 children’s bicycles a year have been fixed up and given to low income families through the program.
We start with bicycles that have been donated and make them look shiny and new with all-volunteer sweat and many new parts.
This program needs:
- Volunteers – check back to join a Work Party
- Cash donations for replacement parts
Work for Wheels
Low income adults can get bicycle repairs done by committing volunteer hours in exchange for repairs completed. Work tasks range from sweeping the shop, sorting parts, or helping load bicycles into customer vehicles.
For teens 14 to 18 years of age this is an intense 5-day program, usually offered a few times a year. Call or email the shop for the next class session: 425-252-6952, firstname.lastname@example.org
