The WRENCH needs your help to ensure that children and families across the city can experience their summer by bike!
During the snowy months bike donations slow down drastically but WRENCH programming keeps going strong all winter long. Now that spring is in the air our bike stock is critically low while demand is rising.
Support vital bike programming in your community by dropping off your unwanted bicycles and parts at any 4R Winnipeg Depot today!
Cycle of Giving is symbolic of The Wrench’s core work- salvaging bikes and parts from our local landfill and recycling sites, and putting them to the best use possible so that every Winnipegger can get around the city cheaply, while helping the planet.
To date, our headquarters have been in the basement of the Animal Services building. We love our partnership with the city, and this space serves us well and will continue to serve some of our needs.
But we want classroom, bike building, and retail spaces that are accessible, and that feel comfortable and inspiring for all Winnipeggers to visit and use. That means moving above ground!
Thank you to everyone who helped in making the 7th annual Cycle of Giving a huge success. Because of your marvelous efforts over 430 children in need will receive a bicycle this holiday season! See pictures of the magical bicycle build here.
