“Provo Bicycle Collective is proud to announce Â newly-formed partnerships with Deseret Industries, LDS Employment Center, and BYU English Language Center through which we hope to provide dozens of free bikes to people in need each year.
Our partnership allows Deseret Industries to recommend their associates and welfare clients to our shop for a free Goodwill Bike â€“ donated bicycles refurbished by PBC volunteers. In 2016, Bicycle Collective gave away 1,436 Goodwill Bikes.
About Deseret Industries and LDS Employment Center:
Deseret Industries is a nonprofit thrift store and donation center that is
devoted to training and educating individuals to prepare them for the
workforce. In 2016, they served 15,597 hired associates and gave away
nearly 7 million pounds of clothing and shoes in humanitarian aid
About BYU English Language Center:
As a lab school, the English Language Center supports BYU’s
Department of Linguistics and English Language by facilitating the
teaching, learning, and research of English as a second language.
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.”
