February 2015
 

Linking Handlebars has kept busy in the new year continuing to collect and refurbish bicycles. In the upcoming year, we plan to reach out to more children in White Plains, Port Chester, and New Rochelle.
During the next couple weeks, Linking Handlebars plans to work hand-in-hand with Bikes4Kids in order to prepare for a large spring distribution. 
Linking Handlebars has successfully donated over 330 bicycles to underprivledged children within our community.
We concluded the past year with another distribution of 15 bicycles and helmets to children at the Hispanic Resource Center in Mamaroneck, NY and hope to donate some more this year!

We are gearing up for more, but we NEED your help!
  • $20 can provide one helmet
  • $30 can repair one bicycle

A donation of a gently used bicycle is also welcome.
