FB4K New Mexico’s program works like this:
February-March: We collect and repair donated bikes. Bikes can be dropped off at one of our bike collection sites in Santa Fe or Albuquerque Locations to be published in early January.
March-April: Volunteer bonanza! All levels of mechanical ability are welcome – including no experience at all! Bikes are a assigned a Cleaner, a Prepper, and a Mechanic. All supplies and instructions will be provided.
May: We hold bike giveaways on Saturdays. We only give bikes to our nonprofit and school partners and our bike giveaways are not open to the public. We do this to ensure that our bike recipients are those with identified need in our community. We can’t give bikes to individuals unfortunately. If you’d like a bike, you need to contact a nonprofit partner or your child’s school. They will let you know if you are participating. We don’t have the capacity to go and pick up one or two bicycles. We maybe able to arrange something if you have 10+ bikes to donate.
June: At this time, we pack up our tools and store them until the following February. We spend this time fundraising, planning for the next giveaway, recruiting nonprofit/school partners to work with for 2022, and seeking our next workshop location.
