KickStand is not in competition with commercial bike shops. All of the bike shops support our mission and are willing to donate used materials to us. We do offer bikes and parts for sale as a way of raising money we need to buy supplies such as tools, tire patches, cables etc. which we buy at local bike shops. These bikes and parts are typically used and can also be ‘earned’ by doing volunteer work for KickStand, so no money need change hands.
KickStand partners with Candoro Arts & Heritage Center this coming Saturday, December 7, 2013 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm for a fund raising event where children’s bikes can be distributed. For those who can afford to buy a bike for their child a donation would be accepted. KickStand will also distribute and fit helmets for the children.
KickStand has partnered with several community groups at present including SEEED, Community Shares, KARM, The Bird House, The Epilepsy Fnd of East Tn, and others.
