Support volunteer efforts to provide bicycles for refugees and others who need transportation in Houston
Freewheels Houston is an all-volunteer effort to provide safe, reliable bicycles to people who need a way to get around Houston to get to work, school and other destinations.
In addition to bicycle donations and the work of volunteer mechanics, Freewheels Houston relies on financial support from the community to achieve our mission. Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to Freewheels by clicking on the "Donate Now" button.
Our goal is to provide bikes that are useful for recipients riding the streets of Houston. We provide new helmets to every recipient through a generous program sponsored by the Texas Medical Association. To make sure bikes are safe and as useful as possible, we spend (on average) about $60 for parts, repairs and to equip each one with essential equipment:
- Front and rear lights for visibility: $12.50
- Locks for security: $11
- Pumps and flat-tire repair kits to recover from inevitable mishaps: $13
If you prefer to donate by check, please make it payable to Freewheels Houston and note on your check. Please mail the check to 2353 Rice Boulevard, Houston, Texas 77005.
