2020 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 is doing things differently this year. We still need partner organizations to help us identify the members of their communities who need bikes, and our volunteers will still be helping us process thousands of bikes — but the schedule for all that will be very different. We’ve been getting some bikes out early, and some bikes will go out much later than in a usual season. In collaboration with our partners, we have been developing new processes that prioritize staff, volunteer, partner, and recipient health and safety. We look forward to talking with our partners about what will work best for them!
