Volunteer opportunity with Free Bikes 4 Kidz!

Free Bikes 4 Kidz is a non-profit that collects gently used bikes, engage volunteers to refurbish them, and then donates them to under resourced neighborhoods. This year we will engage 1,500 volunteers over a 10 week period and donate 3,000 bikes to 6 neighborhoods in Chicago: Englewood, Auburn Gresham, Little Village/N. Lawndale, Garfield Park, Austin, Belmont Cragin. The bike is the tangible piece but the intangibles are: we're giving kids independence, adventure, responsibility, teaching them about sustainability and helping them understand safety and more generally....bikes are fun! 

Interested in learning more? Check out our website: for ways to get involved. We're looking for volunteers to help clean + refurbish donated bikes (no skills required) before the big bike giveaway day on June 13th. 

You can also contact our Partnerships & Volunteer Coordinator, Leahruth Jemilo.
