Review for Community Bike Works, Allentown, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've volunteered for Community Bike Works in a variety of roles and have never been more optimistic about the organizations' future. The staff, volunteers and board are fantastic, and the demand for our programs has never been stronger. We've doubled the number of children we serve in the last two years and offer a broader range of programs/activities to the kids in our community. We have amazing support from stakeholders in our community. They love what we do and are asking us to expand to other areas within our region! I'm looking forward to the future of Community Bike Works and all we can accomplish in the coming years.

Review for Community Bike Works, Allentown, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first volunteered at CBW in 1999. I only needed to participate in one Earn-a-Bike Session and I was hooked! Over the years, I've been a volunteer and Board Member. I am currently the Chair of the Board. CBW is about Kids, not bikes. That is the fundamental principal in which we follow, and is why we have been successful. Despite having volunteered with Bike Works for so long, I continue to be amazed at how many kids we minister to, despite a very small budget. The ED and staff do a great job managing the programs and relationships within the community. They continue to be innovative and adapt to the changing needs/opportunities of our clients. My first hand experience is that our kids love this program and get so much more out of it than a bike and a helmet. That's what keeps me coming back year after year!
