Park Tool Opens Applications For 2022 Community Tool Grants
Park Tool is pleased to announce that the application period for their 2022 Community Tool Grant will open November 1, 2021 and run until December 31, 2021. Now in its seventh year, the Park Tool Community Tool Grant has so far donated over $90,000 worth of tools to deserving organizations.
Park Tool will award grants consisting of bicycle tools and repair stands to ten nonprofit organizations or community groups, in order to help them continue to make a difference in their community. Each of the ten grant recipients will receive over $1,800 in Park Tool products including:
- 1 Park Tool PK-5 Professional Mechanic Tool Kit
- 2 Park Tool PCS-10.3 Portable Repair Stands
- 5 Park Tool SA-1 Shop Aprons
- 1 Park Tool BBB-4 Big Blue Book of Bicycle Repair
In addition, one exceptional program will receive the President’s Choice Award, which will provide them with an additional $1,000 to spend on more tools and repair equipment.
“The bicycle can be many things to many people — transportation, exercise, just plain fun — and it’s a machine that most people can learn to fix and maintain. If you have a bike, and you know how to fix it, that’s an empowering feeling. With the explosion of interest in cycling that’s happened over the past year and a half, we feel it’s more important than ever to support the organizations that are using bikes to do good in their communities,” said Eric Hawkins, Park Tool president and owner.
Applications for the grants will be accepted from November 1, 2021 until December 31, 2021 through the Community Tool Grant Request form. Winners will be announced in mid-January of 2022.
