Frequently Asked Questions
What are the business hours for The WRENCH?
The WRENCH has several locations.
Our main production shop is at 1057 Logan, lower level. This is open for tuneups and repairs at regular rates 10am-5pm mon, tues, wed, and fri. Thursday is "Open Shop", which is reserved for low income Winnipeggers and is pay-what-you-can by appointment.
The WRENCH at the Forks is open late May through mid September, wed-fri 2-8pm and sat-sun 12-6pm. Hours are weather-dependent.
How do I donate bikes or parts to The WRENCH?
We take all donations of bikes and parts at Winnipeg's 4R Sites. Make sure you check their hours prior to your drop off. We check each site about twice a month, and gather the bikes and parts that best serve our program at any given time. We'll ensure your donation serves its best possible use in our community services and programs.
We try not to take donations of parts and bikes at 1057 Logan, nor at the WRENCH Forks Kiosk. We plan our shop space use down to the centimeter and taking in supply we can't use right away slows down our work.
We are unable to offer pick-ups of donations at this time

I'd like to volunteer. How do I do that?
The best way to find out about all of our volunteer opportunities is to sign up for our monthly email.
For new volunteers, we recommend coming down to Volunteer Shop every Saturday from 2-5pm (except for holidays and long weekends) which takes place in our shop at 1057 Logan Ave (in the basement of the City of Winnnipeg's Animal Services Building). It's the best bet for anyone to come down, see the space and get a feel for how our shop works and start learning at a place that's comfortable for you. No sign up or registration is required!
