Kid’s Bike Swap – Sunday June 7, 2015

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.

Join us for one or all of the Thursday night work parties to get the kids bikes ready. All levels of expertise are welcome. We have the bikes, tools and parts so all we need is your sweat.

Christmas House

Kudos  go out to all the volunteers who helped with another year of Christmas House. 103 kids bikes were refurbished and donated to this great non-profit in 2014.

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 each year.

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.
