ST. PAUL, Minn. (BRAIN) — For the fourth consecutive year, Park Tool is accepting applications for its Community Grant Tool Program, which is designed to help local nonprofit cycling organizations worldwide get the tools and repair products they need.

The Park Tool Community Grant Program will provide 10 nonprofit cycling-based programs with a tool kit and two repair stands.

Each of the grant recipients will receive more than $1,400 in Park Tool products including:
1 — Park Tool PK-3 Professional Mechanic Tool Kit
2 — Park Tool PCS-10 Portable Repair Stands
5 — Park Tool SA-1 Shop Aprons

In a new addition for 2019, one of the grant winners will also be granted the "President's Choice" award of an additional $1,000 to spend on more tools and repair equipment.

"It has been great to look back and see how our past Community Tool Grant winners have benefitted from the tools we've provided and all the people they've helped with properly working bicycles. We can't wait to review the applications and pick the deserving winners. We've been blown away each year reading the stories and applications. There are so many well deserving organizations doing such wonderful work out there and we're proud to be able to help in this way," said Eric Hawkins, Park Tool's president/owner and chief mechanic.

Applications will be accepted until Dec. 31 at parktool.com/form/community-tool-grant-request.
