I am interested in getting involved but can't seem to find out any reporting information about this organization. The BBB 'giving review' states that this organization refuses to adhere to its giving standards. Why is this? Also when I went to Charity Navigator, I was not able to find this organization listed or rated. Can anyone help me with this? We have a free bicycle clinic at our church. We fix bikes and give free bikes away. I would be interested in getting involved in something like this, but I need some accountability?
