The Robert and Wilma Burbach Bike Foundation (a non-profit 501c3 organization) collects and refurbishes used, serviceable bicycles to redistribute to kids and people in need.
RWBBF was founded for the purpose of collecting recycled bicycles, refurbishing and redistributing them to kids and needy people of the world. The bikes we receive come from Recycling Centers, businesses and individuals in Anoka County and/or the Twin City Metro Area. Each bike is given away free of charge with safety and maintenance instructions and a helmet. The Foundation will purchase parts, service the bicycles and fund the expenses through fund raising and sponsors.
The RWBBF is an all volunteer organization of very dedicated people from all walks of life. We have come together with the goal of putting new life in recycled bicycles and giving them away to kids and people in need. Each bike is given a thorough evaluation, then we roll up our sleeves and spend the time necessary to renew each one. We have volunteers from local bike shops who are specialists in all kinds of bike repair and service. These consultants advise and train our volunteers on all aspects of proper bicycle repair and restoration.
Bringing joy to a child in need is priceless. We locate families locally and around the world who are in need and provide them with a near-new bicycle, something they might not otherwise be able to afford. To date, we have collected hundreds of bicycles. Located in the North Metro area, we have the workshop space and storage capabilities to bring joy to kids and people in need for many years to come.
