Recycled Cycles to be Made Available for Women Offenders
(Concord, NH) On May 18-19, 2013, Goodwill Industries of Northern New England and the Central New Hampshire Bicycling Coalition will be collecting bicycle donations with the goal of refurbishing them and providing job training skills and low cost transportation for female offenders at the Shea Farm Transitional Housing Unit in Concord.
The pilot project is called "Recycled Cycles" and it will support the education and economic success of the 42 women housed at the Iron Works Road facility in Concord. The women will learn how to repair and maintain the bicycles which will provide a marketable job skill. It will also give them a low cost form of transportation when reporting to their places of employment.
Commissioner William L. Wrenn said, "We are grateful to Goodwill and the Northern New England and Central New Hampshire Bicycling Coalition for their willingness to support the women as they transition back into the community."
Donations can be brought to S&W Sports, 296 South Main Street in Concord or the Goodwill Store at 204 Loudon Road in Concord. For more information please review the Recycled Cycles brochure.
