What. A. Year.
2021 felt like many years all in one! BICAS Community Bike Shop continued to operate through the first half of the year in a pandemic model, providing “essential services” and bicycle donations to the community through our gate service. In June BICAS reopened the doors and by July full programming had returned, including: Community Tools, WorkTrade and Community Service, WTF (Women Trans* Femme) workshop hours, drop-in Art Corner, as well as youth and adult classes. 50 students ages 8-18 enrolled in our Virtual courses offered through May, and an additional 47 students participated in our in-person Youth Earn-A-Bike camps, sending 70 youth home with new bicycles, helmets, and locks. Since July alone over 700 people have returned to visit the Community Tool program, a sliding scale service in which you receive one-on-one guidance to repair your bicycle, a resource the Tucson Community has come to rely on to meet it’s transportation needs.
Your tax-deductible end-of-year donation ensures that BICAS will be able to continue to offer these programs in 2022 and increase opportunities available, continuing to do what we do best: helping people get where they need to go. Click here to donate now!
Did you know that BICAS qualifies for the AZ charitable tax credit? That means residents of Arizona can donate up to $400 and receive that money back in the form of a tax credit. This unique program essentially allows you to choose where your state taxes go! Won’t you consider choosing us?
We’d like to tip our helmets in deepest gratitude to all those whose steadfast support has helped us weather these difficult and unprecedented years — our donors, our board members, and our customers. We couldn’t have done it without your generosity and encouragement.
