Christmas House

Holiday Kids Bike Program

Over the past 20 years, the Sharing Wheels has given more than 1,600 bikes to low income kids for the holidays. Kids bikes are donated by the community, repaired by volunteers, and gifted to low income families through Christmas House in Everett and other nonprofits.

This year many local Ukrainian refugee families hope to get bikes for their often traumatized children. We have partnered with Volunteers of America to support that need.

Our goal is to fix more than 100+ kid bikes this year. You can help us reach this goal!

Volunteer repair parties

6 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays

Volunteers of all mechanical abilities are able to help fix kids bikes. We’ll be hosting work parties on most Tuesdays and Thursdays, Oct. 11 through early December. Work parties are limited to 5 volunteers each night.

Advanced registration is required. Pick a date and RSVP on our Calendar page.

Snacks are provided. Please bring a bottle of water.

Volunteers are encouraged to take one of our classes, and to return more than once to keep learning and practicing basic cleaning and repair skills.

Group work parties

Service clubs and groups can schedule your own work party time with one of our experienced volunteers. Sunday afternoons are best.

Request a group work party by emailing Executive Director Christy Cowley.

Donate kids bikes

Donated kids bikes must be in excellent condition. We can replace worn tires and torn seats, but rusted and broken bikes are NOT a gift – either to us or to kids at Christmas.

Little kid bikes are great. We also need larger bikes for older kids – bikes with 20 and 24-inch wheels.

We prefer bike donations on Saturdays.

Support the holiday bike program

We put about $30 in new parts on each bike to make it safe and shiny for the kids. We also purchase new helmets to go with each bike.

Consider a financial donation to support kids bikes for low income families in our community.

Thanks to the Stillaguamish Tribe for a generous grant that also supports our kids bike and volunteer programs in 2021.
