SOUTH SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) – Do you have an old bike just collecting dust in the garage? A lot of people do. Now, there’s a Salt Lake City based organization called Free Bikes 4 Kids Utah that will take those old bikes off your hands, shine them up and give them a new home.
Free Bikes 4 Kids Utah is a nonprofit geared toward helping children ride into a happier, healthier childhood by providing bikes to kids in need. Free Bikes accepts gently used bikes – cleans them and refurbishes them – then gives the bikes to kids who may not otherwise have bikes.
The organization distributes bikes through community partners like South Salt Lake Promise, Hartland Community 4 Youth and Families, Circles Salt Lake, The Road Home, Millcreek Promise, Head Start and Navajo YES. If you’re a group that works with children and would like to request bikes, please reach out to Free Bikes 4 Kids Utah.
Volunteer opportunities are also available.
Free Bikes 4 Kids Utah is having a bike donation drive Saturday, October 1, 2022 from 8am to Noon at the Free Bikes 4 Kids Warehouse at 2250 South Main Street, South Salt Lake. Bikes of all sizes and types, in any condition, are being accepted at the donation dropoff site.
