Provo Bicycle Collective Forms New Partnership

From BicycleCollective.org:

“Provo Bicycle Collective is proud to announce a newly-formed partnership with Utah Community and Refugee Partnership Center (UCRPC), through which we hope to provide dozens of free bikes to refugees each year.

UCRPC is non-profit organization that is devoted to motivate, empower, enlighten and transform refugees’ life through education.  Their mission is to provide the education, orientation and support refugees need to become self-sufficient members of society.

Our partnership allows UCRCP to recommend their clients to our shop for a free Goodwill Bike – donated bicycles refurbished by PBC volunteers.  In 2016, Bicycle Collective gave away 1,436 Goodwill Bikes.

Our hope is that their clients will use these bikes to meet daily transportation needs; riding to work, shopping for groceries, and meeting appointments.

Bicycle Collective is always in need of money and bike donations and willing volunteers to repair bikes for giveaway.  Interested donors and volunteers can find out how to get involved Bicyclecollective.org.”
