Free Bikes 4 Kidz is a non-profit organization geared toward helping kids ride into a happier, healthier childhood by providing bikes to those most in need.
Every year, 25 million bikes are sold in the US. One-third of those bikes are 20" wheel size or smaller. Since kids grow like weeds, over 8 million bikes are virtually outgrown each year. Endless supply. Sustainability. We're a green organization and we capitalize on the availability of these outgrown bikes. Partnering with a local healthcare provider and hardware chain, we make use of their geographically dispersed facilities to host a one-day regional bike collection event. The public donates gently used bikes, then we organize hundreds of volunteers, like you, over a couple of months to clean and refurbish them. Once approved through our quality review process, we give them away to kids in need. This year (2021), we collected over 2,000 bicycles in need of volunteers to refurbish them.
