Donate to Utica Bike Rescue
As part of our ongoing effort to refurbish and redistribute bikes, we are in constant need of volunteer mechanics (and coffee to keep them wrenching!), bikes, bike parts, general cleaning and building supplies. Donations of 1-3 bikes can be dropped off at the main entrance to the church on weekdays between 9:00 and 2:00. Please contact us to make arrangements for donating more than 3 bikes.
Donations by cash, check or credit card can be made at our downtown Utica location during open shop hours. We're in the Westminster Presbyterian Church at 714 Washington Street. Click here for directions.
Each $50.00 that we receive funds the complete rebuilding of a bike in our inventory!
You can also donate to Utica Bike Rescue via PayPal:
Bikes, Parts, Tools, etc.
Your donated bike will be completely rebuilt by our trained mechanics for release back into the community through one of our programs. We often receive donated bikes that don't necessarily work as a "daily driver". In these cases, the bike is restored and resold, with the proceeds being fed directly back into our charitable programs (Yes, even your vintage English racing bike can help those in need!).
Your generous donations support our grassroots community bicycle project. Utica Bike Rescue is focused on skills training and education. Your donation allows us to provide a hand-up, not just a hand-out.
Donations to Utica Bike Rescue are tax-deductible
