Bikes Not Bombs is delighted to share the news that the Conine Family Foundation has recently awarded us a grant of $100,000! This gift will enable us to expand our community engagement team in 2022, increasing our reach and capacity to collect, process, and distribute bicycles across all of our programs — in Jamaica Plain and at our new Roxbury Hub. Our efforts to reclaim bicycles out of the waste stream ensures:
- Young people in our programs have access to bikes to refurbish and keep as their own
- Youth Apprentices have access to bikes to refurbish for people experiencing economic hardship
- The Bike Shop has bikes to refurbish and sell to our neighbors
- Our international partners have bikes to power their environmental and social justice initiatives
For nearly two decades, the Conine family has supported green spaces for recreation and conservation. In the past year their focus has been working in partnership with the local community to build and maintain a bike network in the Boston area that would safely and reliably connect people and places.
Thank you, Conine Family Foundation, for your generosity and powerful commitment to a more sustainable and equitable world.
