Boise Bicycle Project Is Short On Bike Donations


Every year the Boise Bicycle Project helps grant underprivileged children the wish of owning their own bike. They refurbish old bikes donated to the nonprofit and then hand them out to children who request them. This year they've received more than 700 requests, which is 200 more than they expected. Now, they're asking the community to help them out by donating used kids bikes.
