How can I support the giveaway?
BBP needs YOUR help in making these 500 kids’ dreams come true. For many, these will be the first bike they will ever own.
Consider dreamifying an Adopt-a-Bike by donating $50. This will be help provide lights, locks, helmets, and all the bells & whistles for each kid!
On December 15th, we’ll also need over 250 volunteers to make everything run smooth. Sign up for a shift here!
We also need a few more kids bike donated to make it all happen, so if you have an old bike you wanted to donate to us, now is the best time!
Holiday Kids Bike Giveaway can only be a success with the support of our involved and generous community. Are you interested in adopting a bike and making a kids holiday this year?
We ask for a $50 donation for each kid that goes towards the supplies to making these 500 Dream Bikes a reality. Your donation will help us customize each Dream Bike to its drawing, and provide safety gear such as lights, locks, and helmets for each kid.
Thank you for helping make this our biggest HKBG yet!

Donate Kids Bikes
Over the past two months, our stellar team has been churning out quality kids bikes for the giveaway!
Overhauling these bikes are no easy feat, but surprisingly we’ve fixed up most of the bikes we got from our Summer Bike Drive.
Because of this, we are need of around 150 kid bike donations before the giveaway!
If you have an old bike laying around, consider donating at our shop during open hours.
We are open Wednesday-Friday from 11am-6pm, and Saturday-Sunday from 11am-5pm.
