To make sure that the kids who are truly in need are the ones who receive the free bicycles and helmets we now require that all requests for free bicycles come through our partner organizations. i.e. CASA, Boys and Girls Club, School Staff, Health and Welfare, and other non-profits who provide services to children in our area.
Bicycles can also be purchased at low cost or earned by volunteering in the shop.
We would Love to be able to provide FREE bicycles to anyone who requests one, but we would no longer be able to keep our program alive.
We are not a repair shop. We can teach you how to work on your own bicycle and/or provide the tools plus low cost parts for you to do it yourself.
Funds are needed to pay for new parts to fix donated bicycles, as well as tools, rent for our co-op space, and other expenses of being a non-profit business.
Although our overhead is really low and we have a lot of supporters in our community we hope to someday become self-sustaining.
THANK YOU COEUR D’ALENE FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO SERVING YOU FOR YEARS TO COME!!!
