Freewheels for Kids! Come for a volunteer wrenching party

Reno Bike Project’s Freewheels for Kids outreach program provides free bikes to kids in need every holiday season. Children’s bikes, donated by community members, are repaired and tuned up by RBP volunteers. Those bikes are then donated to community organizations who distribute the bikes to families in extreme need, many of whom will currently be living in shelters or in temporary housing.

In 2017, Freewheels for Kids volunteers refurbished 132 bikes, which were donated to deserving kids served by The Children’s Cabinet, UNR’s Early Head Start Program, Anderson Elementary, Pine Middle School, Kiwanis Bike Program, Reno Housing Authority, and St. Francis of Assisi Food Pantry.

We’re collecting kids bikes for Freewheels 2018 now! If your family has outgrown or out-of-use bikes, you can donate them to Reno Bike Project and we’ll recycle them into a new home. Cash donations are also appreciated, as we will be replacing parts on some bikes to they’re not only ready to ride, but totally appealing to their new owners, too.
