What to donate...
The bike in your garage that hasn't been ridden in years.
The jacket in your closet that doesn't fit right.
The tent that your family outgrew.
The cross country skis your kids outgrew.
The car rack that doesn't fit on your new vehicle.
The backpack you won that you'll never use.
The bike parts that came off when you upgraded.
These kinds of donations add up!
In June, 2015, alone, individuals donated more than $5,000 worth of items like these. A small contribution from each person adds up to a really big deal for us!
Bike and bike stuff
Donated bikes are really what keep us going. They are the lifeblood of our organization. The kids work on bikes and learn. They earn bikes. We refurbish and sell bikes. We refurbish and donate bikes. We sell bike parts. We get people out on bikes.
We accept bike donations any time of day and any season. We accept bikes of any brand and any condition. We accept bikes that have been run over. We accept bikes that are rusty and do not work. We accept very nice bikes that very nice people decide they would rather give to us. We accept bike parts and accessories- and all of the same criteria apply.
You can drop off donations at any time. We can also arrange to come to you and pick up bikes. Email us to set it up.
We gladly accept donations of general outdoor gear. Tents, sleeping bags, camp stoves, lanterns, knives, etc. We accept donated gear of any age and condition. If it isn't sell-able as is, maybe we can work on it or find a different use for it.
We also accept donations of outdoor apparel. Name brands are our preference, but again, we will accept just about anything on donation. If we can't sell it, we'll find another way to make it useful.
We always need all sorts of things. Tools is a big one. We wear out a lot of tools. Bike tools in particular. Building supplies are helpful. We're always rearranging and finding better ways of organizing our workspace. Also, money to put towards these areas is extremely helpful (see photo of new tool arrival at right).
Computers! We run off of two ancient Apple computers. One is a personal laptop and the other is an old iMac we purchased for $300. Our preference is to continue working with Apple, as most of our documents and applications are run through that system. If you have an Apple computer newer than 2009 that you are interested in donating we could put it to good use!
