Each Saturday you'll find a group of kids on mountain bikes at Colonel Francis Beatty Park in Matthews. On Tuesday nights you'll find a group of kids working on bikes at Charlotte Re-Cyclery in NoDa. 

These youth are part of something special. They’re with Trips for Kids Charlotte.

Trips for Kids Charlotte takes the simple childhood activity of bike riding and bicycle maintenance as tools to help underserved youth learn life lessons, focusing on respect, honesty, teamwork, overcoming obstacles, healthy and safe lifestyles and service.

The USO of North Carolina Charlotte Center delivers countless acts of caring, comfort, connection and support to more than 135,000 active duty, National Guard, and reserve military and family members annually. Funds raised from #GivingTuesdayCLT are so important to the USO of NC because the organization relies on the generosity of neighbors as they are not funded by the national USO organization.
