Other ways to support Waterside

Workplace giving and Corporate Matching

Many workplaces offer a charitable giving match as a benefit to their employees. Check to see if your employer matches donations to double (or even triple) your donation!

Get your company involved! From team-building activities to sponsorship opportunities, there are a number of ways that your company can get involved at Waterside. You can also hire our bike shop staff for on-site bike repair services.

Rewards Programs

Some companies offer rewards programs for purchases that benefit local charities. Be sure to choose Waterside Workshops as your charity if you shop at Amazon Smile or Sports Basement’s Basementeers program.


Bike Donations

We are currently accepting bikes, bike parts, and bike accessories as donations during our regular business hours, Tuesday – Sunday 12-6pm at 84 Bolivar Drive.

Tools and Supplies Donations

Our bike and boat programs are always looking for quality tools and supplies for our workshops. Our bike shop can make use of specialized bike tools, common hand tools, and clean rags. Our boat shop is looking for woodworking tools (wood planes, etc.).

Please contact us prior to donating tools

Boat Donations

Due to lack of space, we generally can no longer accept boat donations.
We are interested in certain boating equipment, such as new (or like new) lifejackets.
