Portland, OR. Do you have an old bike that your kid has outgrown or you no longer use? Is it a little damaged and collecting dust? That bike could change the life of a local child in need. Providence is partnering with Free Bikes 4 Kidz on their 3rd annual bike collection and donation campaign.

Free Bikes 4 Kidz is a non-profit organization that collects, refurbishes, and donates bikes to kids of all ages, right here in our community. Adult-sized bikes are welcome for teens.

Collection day is Saturday, June 12, from 9 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  Many Providence clinics will serve as one of 17 collection sites around the Portland Metro area. A donation site map can be found here. Donations are all outdoors and will follow COVID safety guidelines. Donors will receive a tax acknowledgment receipt.

Your donations will help us get more kids back on bikes. FB4K is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All donations are tax-deductible.

Don’t have a bike you’re ready to part with? Volunteer to collect bikes, or repair and refurbish them. Get details at www.fb4kportland.org. FB4K originated in Minneapolis in 2008. Since then, the organization has given more than 50,000 bikes to children across the country, helping them ride into happier, healthier lives!

All items donated to Free Bikes 4 Kidz are deductible for income tax purposes at their present fair market value. Internal Revenue Code places the responsibility for estimating the fair market value upon the donor rather than the agency receiving the gift. (Local office of the Internal Revenue advises that “Fair Market Value” is interpreted as that which a buyer is willing to pay and a seller is willing to accept.) Free Bikes 4 Kidz does not provide any goods or services for any property contributed. Click for a printable FB4K Portland Tax Receipt for your bike donation.
