Bikes For Kids is a Connecticut based registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1989 that brings smiles to children one bike at a time.
Our volunteers collect, repair, and safety test donated used bicycles. The refurbished bicycles, along with new helmets, are given away to individuals of all ages and needs. Most donated bicycles remain in Connecticut, but some have reached children in other states and countries. More than 1,000 bicycles are given away annually. Requests for bicycles come from local and state social service organizations, churches, schools, non-profits, and individuals.
