The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
A father and son learn about wrenching on bicycles at the Bozeman Bike Kitchen.
We are looking for people with skills (basic or advanced) in bicycle maintenance to help with our mission of refurbishing donated bicycles for re-distribution back into the Gallatin Valley community. We are open two evenings per week and Saturday morning, with daytime hours added during the summer. A typical volunteer session at the Bike Kitchen includes working with our volunteer and paid staffers to find a bicycle needing repair, performing those aspects of the repair you are comfortable with (as well as the exciting and empowering learning that comes along with tackling those aspects which you are not). Volunteers can also assist in educating others or providing information about our mission and programs to visitors. We provide a fun environment for all - if you are a "people person" or someone who just wants to wrench away!
