Mayflower outreach supports and partners with organizations through offering financial gifts, volunteering our time and donating our space.

Our Outreach Partners

Mayflower sets aside a significant percentage of our annual budget for Outreach. As we live into Jesus’ Great Commandment, these funds impact our community, our country, and our world.

Energy For Mission

Mulick Park Tutoring

Over many years, Mayflower has developed a strong relationship with Mulick Elementary School, serving their students as reading, and sometimes math, mentors. Our mentorship program has steadily grown from six volunteers in 2018 to nearly twenty today. Our parents and students spend the high school lunch hour working with first and second-grade students, focusing on learning sight words and beginning reading skills.

We have found that this school-year-long commitment not only makes difference in the lives of the elementary students, but in the high schoolers' lives as well.

Upcycle Bikes

Join us on Saturday April 13th from 9am to noon for our spring bike sale and collection drive. We’ll be hosting this at our shop at 800 Monroe Ave. NW in Suite 110 along with the team from Bagel Kitchen.

Upcycle Bikes exists to donate refurbished adult bikes to individuals needing greater access to community resources and opportunities. In fact, we refurbish and donate around 90% of the bikes that come through our doors.

We do select some bikes, though, to be sold at very reasonable prices. This helps to fund our organization and efforts so that we can continue to broaden our impact. All of our sale bikes are bike shop quality bikes. We have a good selection of adult road, mountain, and hybrid bikes in varying sizes. We even have some kids bikes and quality parts available for sale. Even though our bikes are used, they have been cleaned, completely refurbished, and tuned. They are ready to roll!

Spring is the time when we are turning over our inventory as well. Completed bikes are rapidly going out the door to their new homes, and we need “new” donations to keep our mechanics busy and to support the huge need for bikes in and around greater Grand Rapids. So, please donate that unused bike, and we’ll give it a new life and a new purpose. Bring it down to our shop on April 13th. We’ll get the process rolling. All donations are tax deductible, and we will provide receipts.

See you on Saturday April 13th!
