Being awarded this Proclamation by the Town of Huntington, after only 19 months in existence, is a tremendous honor! Lisa & I are so incredibly appreciative to be recognized for our community service. We made a promise to each other and to Brett that we would give the beginning years of our nonprofit total dedication to see if our program could really benefit people in our community. We modeled our nonprofit after a few very special organizations that we were inspired by. We never realized just how much joy we would get from serving our community. Today we are more committed than ever to assist all of our neighbors in need and extend a helping hand with the simple but powerful gift of a bicycle. We are thankful and so excited to continue on with the enormous amount of work we have ahead of us to allow Brett’s Bicycle Recycle soar to even greater heights in our brother’s memory.

Huntington Matters Gives Back & Adams Cyclery Pays It Forward!

Brett’s Bicycle Recycle is excited and so incredibly honored to be the winner of the Huntington Matters Gives Back online Facebook Poll for May 2019. We were nominated alongside two very deserving local, nonprofits Camp Good Mourning and Splashes of Hope. Both nonprofits have been doing wonderful things in our Huntington community for so many years. Camp Good Mourning provides a free overnight bereavement camp program for grieving Long Island children who are coping with the loss of a parent and/or sibling. Splashes of Hope is dedicated to transforming the environments of hospitals with custom hand-painted murals which are designed to comfort patients during treatment, healing and recovery by providing a soothing and uplifting visual focus. 

Our AWESOME prize is $500 worth of much needed bicycle parts and bicycle cleaners from Adams Cyclery. Little did we know that we would get an even BIGGER surprise!!! Adams Cyclery matched that $500 prize and THEN threw $500 worth of helmets in so we drove away with our hearts filled with gratitude and love AND our truck filled with a total of  $1,500 worth of bicycle goodies!!! OMG! We want to send a HUGE thank you to Denise & Chuck, the owners of Adams Cyclery. Adams Cyclery is celebrating 70 years serving East Northport, the Town of Huntington and all of Long Island. The story of their family owned business is fascinating. Stop by and ask Denise to tell you how they came to be such an important part of the history of the Town of Huntington. Over the past year Denise & Chuck have reached out to us continuously to offer their support, donate a beautiful bicycle, donate bicycle supplies and offer to let us borrow their van for community events. All of that is a testament to what good, caring and generous people they are. Their friendship and partnership means so much to us. Adams Cyclery will always be our go to shop for all our bicycle necessities. 

 So after this AMAZING day we want to thank our Huntington community, Huntington Subaru (corporate sponsor), Adams Cyclery and everyone at Huntington Matters Gives Back especially June Margolin. June, our Facebook Live rockstar, made all this possible, giving the whole community the opportunity to be involved in the excitement. Huntington Matters Gives Back is a great program that puts a spotlight on all the great work our local 501(c)(3) nonprofits are doing in our community. We also want to send a BIG thank you to Nancy & Liam from Supreme Trophies for jumping on this crazy train and for making the two beautiful engraved plaques that we gave to Adams Cyclery and Huntington Matters Gives Back. Every single person involved is contributing to making our Huntington community the place where we are proud to live. Thank you for supporting all of Brett’s Bicycle Recycle’s efforts to give back to the community that we love so much! THANK YOU!

It feels really good to know that our nonprofit is starting to make a difference. We want to thank Kim for all of the amazing things she does for our community.
