Bicycle Donation Drive

The City of Omaha is sponsoring a city-wide cleanup on Saturdays, beginning April 17th and lasting for six weeks. Garages all over town are being cleaned out; hundreds of bikes are being thrown away.

Believing in the mission to REUSE and ReCYCLE, Community Bike Project will be stationed at the Crossroads Mall parking lot on each of these Saturdays to collect donated bikes.

Please consider volunteering to help: accept bike donations, sell T-Shirts, provide donation receipts, explain the CBSO mission, sort the bike donations, remove parts and prepare bikes for hauling, and wave when people honk. We will use the bikes in our community education and outreach programs to promote stronger communities through sustainable transportation and healthy exercise.

We will be accepting bike donations in the Crossroads Mall parking lot from 9AM to Noon on the following Saturdays:
April 17
April 24
May 1
May 8
May 15
May 22

Please PICK ONE OR MORE of these days, and send an email to omahabike@gmail.com with the days you can help. This is the biggest project we have initiated and we NEED YOUR HELP to make it successful ! Thank you !
