Holiday Bike Program
Sharing Wheels has always had a holiday bike program for low income kids. In past years, these bikes have been donated to Christmas House. For 2020, Christmas House organizers have asked Sharing Wheels to distribute bikes directly, ourselves.
Local nonprofits and government agencies are encouraged to refer families in need to Holiday Kids Bike program. Please contact Executive Director Christy Cowley for more information.
Kids bikes will be matched with families as best we can, but the number and style of bikes is limited. A request form will be available starting Nov. 13. We expect to schedule bike pickup times the weekend of Dec. 12-13. New helmets will also be available if kids need them.
Volunteers are working now to fix donated bikes. To help, see our Fix Kids Bikes page. It can take as much as 3 hours to refurbish just one kids bike!
Sponsors and Donors Needed
You or your organization are welcome to contribute to the cause.
We put about $30 in new parts on each bike to make it safe and shiny for the kids. That adds up to thousands of dollars in tires, seats, handlebar grips, etc.
Businesses are encouraged to donate cash or in-kind support to our program. You can:
- Organize a 5-person work party
- Donate snacks or grocery gift cards
- Contribute cash and become an official sponsor
We also accept donations of checks or cash in our Everett location. Send a check by mail to Sharing Wheels, 2531 Broadway, Everett WA 98201 .
