From September 3 to December 6 the Longmont Fire Stations will be accepting donated bikes for the Longmont Kid’s Holiday Bike Program.
Each year for the last 30+ years, Longmont has hosted the Longmont Kid’s Holiday Bike Program. This program allows anyone to bring in a new or used bicycle to any of the Longmont Fire Stations. These bikes will later be fixed or cleaned up by a group of volunteers and then taken to the YMCA for distribution.
A series of volunteer days will be announced to clean up and fix the bikes before handing them out to children.
The number of bikes received and handed out through this program vary year-to-year, but Chris Kooiman, the organizer of the event, says that if they can give out 50 bikes they are happy.
Families seeking a bike for their children are encouraged to contact the Longmont YMCA to see if they qualify.
