Wheel Drive (Fall 2016)

We’re all about getting residents to put down the devices, get outdoors, and get active.

We collect, refurbish, and give away used riding toys (scooters, bikes, skates, skateboards, etc) and helmets in small-town Newark. Our Wheel Giveaways wouldn’t be possible without donated items from generous residents like you via our FALL Wheel Drives and financial support from Cargill. Thank you!

Our Wheel-Thrus include free, onsite repair of existing riding toys, bringing mechanics to our high-density housing neighborhoods. Youth and adults cannot get active if their “ride” isn’t rideable! Keep and eye out for this SPRING event via our Facebook page.

One common question we get is, “Are the riding toys exclusively for Newark residents?” The answer is No. Our program serves the greater community; however, we emphasize our outreach on Newark and try to give priority to Newark residents when necessary and practical, recognizing that we do have limited resources.
