Got a dusty bike? Donate it here on October 5

Free Bikes 4 Kidz will turn that bike into a shiny smile for a kid in need.

We’re looking for gently used bikes for kids from preschool to high school. We’ll clean, refurbish, and if necessary repair them, have them inspected for safety, and give them with a new bike helmet to kids in need on December 14. We are particularly in need of bikes for little riders, striders, balance bikes, and tricycles.
