The Boys & Girls Club Bike Exchange is an all-volunteer effort that collects donated used bikes, reconditions and sells them. All of the proceeds from the sales support the Boys & Girls Club after-school programs. The bike shop is located at Capitol Plaza Shopping Center, 1600 North Olden Avenue, Ewing, New Jersey. See how you can become involved.
Organize a used bike collection drive through your local sports league, church, synagogue, employer, or other service organization. Bikes in any condition are accepted then re-conditioned by an all-volunteer workforce and sold at the Bike Exchange.
Help load and transport bikes from various bike shops and bike drives throughout the year.
Handle all aspects of bike shop management. Managers open and close the store, supervise activities, price bicycles that are coming off the workbenches, and process sales. New managers train under seasoned managers. Hours: 5 to 8 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays (split shifts available on Saturdays).
