Free Bikes 4 Kidz Bike Donation Drive
Save the date for the last Free Bikes 4 Kidz bike donation drive of their 2023 bike giveaway season so we can see that everyone who wants a bike in Dane County has one! There will be numerous stations setup around the city for you to drop off your donated bicycles. On Saturday, November 19th, the donation stations will be setup from 10am-2pm, locations are listed below. Please note, this will be their first bike collection in Milwaukee as they start to serve Milwaukee nonprofits.
- Waunakee Neighborhood Connection – 208 S. Century Avenue, Waunakee
- Delta Beer Lab – 167 E. Badger Road, Madison
- Monona Fire Department – 1101 Nichols Road, Monona
- Salem United Church of Christ – 502 Mark Drive, Verona
- Lexus of Madison – 8000 Airport Road, Middleton
- Starion Bank – 350 S. Grand Avenue, Sun Prairie (Prairie Lakes)
- MILWAUKEE AREA – Two Men and a Truck – 11800 W. Burleigh St. #240, Wauwatosa
They ask that bikes be gently used or in repairable condition. With the help of paid mechanics and volunteers, they will spend the winter refurbishing the bikes so they’re as good as new to giveaway in May 2023. If you are unable to make it to the donation drive, you can drop your bikes off at Lexus of Madison or bring them to East Towne Mall to the Free Bikes 4 Kidz workshop.
