You may not realize this, but Mission Central can accept bicycles along with all of the other items that we can take! While some can be used locally, we also partner with Bikes for the World in order to help provide affordable used bicycles to low-income recipients, for access to school, work and for health care. Partners of Bikes for the World provide training and employment for mechanics who refurbish and maintain bicycles.
There are partnerships in Africa, providing bikes in Ghana and Sierra Leone, the Philippines, Central America and other places.
Bicycles of all models in repairable condition or better are welcomed. A $10 donation is appreciated along with a bike donation, to help cover costs.
