The Urban Bike Project gave away 100 bicycles and helmets as part of their ambitious annual Christmas Build in 2018. Each winter, an army of volunteers descend on UBP’s small Walnut Street shop to fix and polish piles of used bikes before the December deadline. It’s a diverse group of volunteers: Business execs, bike enthusiasts, and neighborhood kids each take turns building and repairing tiny bikes for 100 children ages eight or younger.

Urban Bike Project’s 2018 financial supporters include Longwood Foundation, Dogfish Head Brewery, Department of Health & Social Services, Neighborhood Building Block Fund, Capital One, Discover, White Clay Bicycle Club, Wilmapco, Independence Wealth Advisors, Exelon Foundation
