Donate or Volunteer
BWIRC exists entirely due to the generous support of the Indian River County community. If you are interested in supporting us, there are at least three options available:
1. Donate Bikes and Parts
The Bike Rehab Project relies on donated bikes and parts to accomplish our objective of making sure that everyone in our community who needs a bike has access to one. All donated bikes will be accepted, regardless of condition. Donated bikes will support BWIRC programs by being rehabbed and distributed, dismantled/recycled for inventory parts, donated to similar rehab programs, or sold for revenue to support BWIRC operations.
If you have a bike or parts that you would like to donate, simply drop them off at Orchid Island Bikes and Kayaks located at 1175 Commerce Avenue, Vero Beach, FL 32960 (Behind Staples Office Supply). Tell them that you are dropping off a donation for Bike Walk Indian River County, Inc. They will make sure that we get it. Unfortunately, as an all volunteer organization, we do not have the ability to pick up bikes.

2. Donate Time
We are an all volunteer group. We welcome new volunteers. We can put you to work in a manner that best utilizes your skills and interests, no matter what they may be. If you are interested in volunteering, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Become a Member or Donate Money
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We have no paid administrative staff and minimal overhead. While some portion of the donations we receive is used to support our operations (e.g., web site hosting fees, state filing fees, etc.), most of the donations we receive are used to directly support The Bike Rehab Project. Those funds are used to purchase bike parts, bike lights and locks. We are very careful to use our donations efficiently. For example, we are able to purchase all parts at wholesale cost due to the generous support of Orchid Island Bikes and Kayaks. We have also been able to source high qualify light sets including both headlights and taillights for less than $10/set.
