Westchester County has a poverty rate of about 10%, signifying that 100,000 people live at or below the federal poverty level. As the cost of living increases, more families are having difficulty fulfilling their children's needs. Many children do not have access to convenient transportation, obesity rates are rising, and there is a scarcity of outdoor activities. Bicycling is a great way for children to stay in shape and enjoy the outdoors. Bicycles are also an efficient means of transportation and benefit the environment.
Our organization is dedicated to giving children in need their own bicycle. We have distributed over 2,200 bicycles to children in Mamaroneck, Port Chester, New Rochelle, White Plains, and Yonkers. Our annual goal is to increase the number of bicycles we distribute.
You can help us succeed!
All donations go directly to the purchase of new bicycles and helmets and to repairs gently used bicycles for young boys and girls.
