Community Chain
Coming together to make a difference

Georgia is a volunteer working with Ward 4 Mutual Aid delivering vital supplies to unhoused members of her DC community. She had been using this cart on foot until we recently matched her with a bike. The community then came together and funded a new Burley trailer to help ease deliveries.

Bikes for the World partnered with BikeMatch DC to deliver bikes to essential workers in the city during the COVID-19 pandemic. An Awesome Grant helped fund parts and repairs of donated bikes used for this effort.

Bikes for the World partners with Charity Connect to bring rewarding volunteer opportunities to our community that benefit partners around the world.
