We Need Your Help.jpg

THIS IS BBR CENTRAL

We want to thank our community for always coming through for us!! At this time, we are LIMITING our bicycle collections to focus on 3 IMPORTANT GOALS

 As of June 1st 2019 we are asking for your help in the following areas. Volunteerism, Monetary Donations and a Truck Donation. Right here in our new BBR CENTRAL section on our homepage you will find exactly what we’re in need of. This section will be updated as our needs arise.

MONETARY DONATIONS
It costs quite a bit of money to repair bicycles! We continually need to purchase chains, tubes, tires, hand grips, reflectors, lube, chain cleaners, training wheels etc. to make these hundreds of donated bicycles safe for riding and look all sparkly and new! We also purchase helmets that are paired with every child’s bicycle and with most teen and adult bicycles.

VOLUNTEERS
If you have some time that you would like to share with us by fixing bicycles, sorting, disassembling bicycles and cleaning bicycles please email us. You don’t need to be an expert. We will show you how you can be hands on by prepping bikes for our event giveaways. These much needed bike parts that you will be salvaging will be used to repair other bikes.

TRUCK DONATION
We are in URGENT need of a good running, decent looking 10ft. or 15ft. white box truck. We typically transport 30-40 bicycles to our community events for giveaway. We don’t have a vehicle big enough to do that so we’ve been renting U-Haul trucks for every event. This is too expensive and is not at all cost-effective! Do you own a dealership or do you have a used box truck that you no longer need? If you would like to donate it please email us.

We need your help so we can better serve our community that we love so much!

Please volunteer. Please donate. Please help us Recycle it Forward!

EMAIL US HERE

A portion of the donations we receive go to our general operating expenses. Your donations are so important to help support our infrastructure. We have to allocate some funds for rent, insurance, vendor fees, website, fundraising efforts, professional development and overall sustainability of our project. We appreciate your support of our mission so we can focus on positive outcomes and meaningful impact to the underserved in our community.

Featured Community Story

My son {about 2.5 years ago} was given a bike from this amazing nonprofit. Previously, I entered him in a community fundraiser contest that would gift a child a bike. His name wasn't drawn but he was so happy and cheered for the child who did. He than asked me for that year's Christmas for a bike with training wheels. To make a long story short, a group of ladies made it happen for my son. That is how I discovered this great organization. I wish I had a picture of my son who received his first bike. His face was priceless.
