Do you have a new or used bicycle that you’d like to donate?  Our office has worked with a Church in the area that provides new and refurbished bikes to both children and adults (who may need a bike as their only form of transportation.)  This group also accepts bike parts, so if you have a bike (in any shape), let my office know and we’ll put you in contact with this group and the wonderful work that they are doing.
