Declutter Old Bicycles for Good! Help or Start a Christmas Bicycle Program for Kids in Your Area
Posted Nov 29 2011 1:05am
The City of Longmont, CO fire stations are accepting used bicycles for donation to Bicycle Longmont’s Christmas Bike Program. Drop off unwanted, used bikes at the nearest fire station. Santa’s elves will repair the donated bikes! Go Santa!!
Kids receive repaired and happy bikes through charity organizations: The Safe Shelter of St. Vrain Valley, the OUR Center, the Inn Between and the school district’s Safe Routes to School Program.
For over two decades the Christmas Bike Program has been helping local children get a “pre-owned” bike to change their lives in an important way. A bike might enable a child to earn money with a paper route, see relatives who live far enough away that walking would take too long, get groceries and . . . just have some fun with friends or alone!
Scooters and tricycles are also welcome.
Make a difference this year. Declutter and old bike for a new life for a child.
Start a Christmas Bicycle Program in your community this year!
