Each year we work diligently to collect funds, purchase and assemble bikes and then distribute them to worthy, established children’s charities for their holiday giving programs. If you are a member of an organization that you think would benefit from the gift of bicycles during the holidays, please visit our Grant Request Form. Each year we look forward to our annual Bike Build in December. In one day, we assemble ALL of the bicycles for our holiday giving program and we also assemble bicycles for separate projects that will require built bicycles in the coming year.
Some of these projects include:
- While a large number of our bikes are distributed during the holiday to children for whom this will be their only gift, we also provide bikes to the Lifestyle Modification Clinic of Santa Clara Valley Medical Center.
- We are also involved on a smaller level in providing large three-wheeled tricycles year round to mentally and physically disabled children who come from needy families. The bicycles can be costly, upwards of $300 apiece retail which is financially out of reach for the families we serve.
- In addition to the bicycles that have been distributed throughout our community, this year we are reaching further in our efforts to put kids on bicycles.
Remember, 100% of your donation will go directly toward the purchase of bicycles. We hope you see the importance in our work.
As Robert Frost once so aptly put it, we have “miles to go before (we) sleep”.
