Recycle Bicycle Harrisburg is run entirely by volunteers. Volunteers are the strength of our existence.
Whether bike mechanics, grant writers, number crunchers, or maintenance folks, these people have kept this organization alive and play a vital role in fulfilling our mission.
Our diverse group of volunteers all share the same commitment of getting bikes to people who need them. Last year, we recorded over 7,000 total volunteer hours. We thank everyone who has given their time and talent.
No matter what your skills or abilities, your unique contribution will be recognized and appreciated. Join us today.
How You Can Help
- Repair Bikes – Even if you don’t have any previous experience repairing bikes, we are happy to train you on what you need to know to build and repair bikes. While basic mechanical and bicycle repair skills are certainly helpful, neither is required.
- Recycle Bikes – More skilled at taking them apart, then putting them back together? We’ve got just the thing for you. Any bike that is donated to Recycle Bicycle Harrisburg, that can’t be repaired is taken apart by volunteers and we recycle any usable part to fix bikes.
- Community Events – If you’d rather work with people than pedals, you can volunteer to help out at the many community events that we attend. We provide bike parking for events; do bike giveaways at community days; conduct bicycle safety sessions and attend school fairs.
- Behind-The-Scenes – Some of our volunteers never even come into the shop. They help out by writing grant applications, designing newsletters, sending out mailings, processing donations and so much more. If this is something you’re interested in, let us know!
- Ride With Us – We love to ride bikes and participate many local parades, events and fund raisers. So saddle up and join us on our next adventure. See our calendar of events.
- Community Service – Just let us know if your church or community group would like to volunteer some time. There’s always a project waiting for groups willing to help out. We can also provide hours to people who are performing community service requirements.
