Since 2017, members of the Sri Sathya Sai Centers of Phoenix and Mesa in Arizona have participated in the annual Recycle Your Bicycle project, organized by the Arizona Association for Foster and Adoptive Parents. The project aims to bring joy to foster children by presenting them with their first bicycle. About 15 SSSIO volunteers spent their weekends in October and November 2020 to repair, refurbish, and clean used bicycles to get them ready in time for distribution during Christmas. However, due to the restrictions imposed by the pandemic, the organizers bought 1,000 new bicycles instead, and gave them away in a single-day event where the volunteers assembled the bicycles and presented them to foster children and their families.
