Ongoing Volunteer Needs

As a nonprofit, Sharing Wheels relies on volunteers. We simply can’t fix used bikes and offer our community bike shop without you.

Ongoing activities:

  • Taking donated bikes home to repair and return.
  • Filling weekly shifts in the shop to help with customer service.
  • Posting bikes and parts for sale online.
  • Basic shop support: tire fixing, cleaning, stripping bikes.

Volunteer Job Descriptions

Outreach Volunteers

Community events that support our mission and help promote our work are great places to be – if we have volunteers. Event volunteers help represent Sharing Wheels by staffing a table, sharing shop information, helping with logistics, and picking up or returning materials to the shop.

If you have questions, contact Executive Director Christy Cowley.

Shop Volunteers

Volunteer bike mechanics are always needed in the shop. Have you repaired bikes at home or worked in a bike shop? Keep your skills fresh refurbishing adult bikes and helping customers in the shop. Beginning mechanics and non-mechanical volunteers willing to get greasy are also needed.

Shop Greeters who can commit at least 4 hours per month are needed to help with customer service during our busy season. We’ll match the job to your skills: simple repairs, taking in donations, greeting customers, answering phones, etc.

Administrative & Promotional Volunteers

Do you do social media? We could use your help with Facebook posts and photos. You can also build computer skills by entering data and managing files. Other duties may include creating and delivering marketing materials, acknowledging donors, event planning, and organizing donations. Best if you can commit regular time weekly or monthly for consistency.
