2021 is a very different year.
Typically, FB4K MN packs a whole lot in a very short time period, with volunteers cleaning and fixing thousands of used bikes in just a few weeks in the fall, and getting them out the door with the help of our community organization partners just before the winter holidays.
Because EVERYTHING is different in a global pandemic, FB4K MN has been doing things differently too. From the summer of 2020 to May 2021, we took applications from interested non-profit partners who were able to figure out creative ways to support the communities of families they serve. We’ve been able to send out nearly 2,000 bikes and have plans in place to process and distribute about 2,000 more before next fall.
In the meantime, we need to close our applications so that we can stay focused on fulfilling the requests we already have. Our plan is to re-open our application process in August 2021 so that we can fulfill those new requests as we have done in “normal” years, over the course of fall and winter 2021.
Please check back here starting August 1, 2021 to apply to be one of our partner organizations for 2021. Thank you!
