Bikes for Kids was started two years ago by the Crone family in conjunction with the Aurora Optimist Club.
Last spring this program was able to outfit 80 kids in the Newmarket and Aurora area with pre-loved bikes.
Here’s a letter that ran in the Auroran last year:
The following is a March 30th post from the AuroraNewmarketRecycles group with a call out for bikes this spring:
We are looking for more bikes this year to distribute to kids in need. We will take all sizes and all condition. Teen/adult sized bikes are most welcome too.
We fix up the bikes that are donated and distribute them in late April.
You can drop them off on the front yard of: 5 Illingworth Ct, Aurora, ON or contact me at cynthia.crone if you need a bike picked up.
The smiles and joy that these kids show when given a new bike makes a world of difference. 😉
Once I dig out our gear from the back shed I suspect I’ll be wheeling over a bike or two that our girls have outgrown.
Perhaps you know someone who can too.
