Christmas House

Sharing Wheels already has 135 kids’ bikes for low income families at Christmas House in December. But every bike needs some TLC first – cleaning, new tires, safe brakes, etc. We really need your help to refurbish those bikes for the kids!

No experience is needed, just a willingness to get greasy.

Kids Bike Work Parties

We welcome families, friends and groups to plan a day of service at the shop – and then keep coming back.  Snacks are provided, but please bring your own water. Kids Bike Work Parties are every Thursday night and every other Sunday afternoon as follows:

  • 6:00-9 p.m. every Thursday Sept. 20 through Dec. 6
  • Noon to 4 p.m. Sundays Sept. 30, Oct. 14, Oct. 28, Nov. 4, Nov. 18

Kids old enough to help are welcome provided they are supervised by a responsible adult.

Volunteer Incentives

Help at three work parties starting in September, and earn $20 credit to spend on anything at the shop. Help at four work parties this fall and you’ll earn a $10 Starbucks card or a Sharing Wheels t-shirt (your choice). Must sign in and help at least 1.5 hours per event. 

Volunteers who work at least 10 hours in a month can also make special orders through our wholesaler at cost plus 20% (plus tax) – just in time for Christmas.

Sponsors Welcome

You or your organization are welcome to contribute to the cause.

We can put $10 to $20 in new parts on a bike to make it safe and shiny for the kids.  That adds up to about $1,500  in tires, seats, handlebar grips, etc. We also pay for snacks and incentives to keep our volunteers happy.

We couldn’t afford the Christmas House bike program without volunteer and community support.

Community Sponsors

Thanks to Raising Cane Ranch and the Pate Family for supporting our kids bike programs. The Gyro Shack in Everett is providing lunch for a volunteer work party.  Sno-Isle Food Co-Op has provided healthy juice and snacks at our fall work parties.  A grant from B.I.K.E.S. Club of Snohomish County pays for the parts that make the bikes like new.

Volunteers donate about 350 hours of labor into fixing bikes each year.
