Volunteering to Get Kids on Bikes

Volunteering to Get Kids on Bikes

Once again our Denver staff spent a very fulfilling day volunteering at @projectrecycle, a non-profit dedicated to gifting bikes to kids in need.

We cleaned and repaired 30-35 bikes and are working with Holm Elementary School this year in the Dream Bike Program. Up to 80 4th graders can earn a free bike and helmet by meeting academic and personal goals set by their teachers.

Project ReCycle is a 501(c)3 organization that provides smiles to children all over Colorado via a bicycle. Their first run at this venture in 2010, led them to create a program that would not only guarantee smiles but would also influence academic behavior in a positive manner.

As part of their Dream Bike Program, Children, during their academic year, are encouraged to earn a bike by improving in 3 areas; Respect, Attendance, and Academic Growth. Project ReCycle works with multiple agencies to provide stability for children. The gifted bicycle becomes a constant in a life of change.

If you or someone you know would like to volunteer with Project ReCycle, please see their opportunities. They need everything from behind the scenes help, to event volunteers at bike drives/distribution, transporters, mechanics, and fundraising. You can also send an email to admin@projectrecycle.org or give them a call at 844-776-7329. If you have old bikes just sitting around, you can donate them to any of their bike drop-off locations.
