CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH OF PATCHOGUE, NY
RECENT UPDATE 11/10/12 Ten bikes have been given away and they have 100 still available.
UPDATE: The church is looking for people who would like to learn to assemble new bikes and fix old ones. They are interviewing now but the actual training program will not start until March. They will pay a minimum of $12.00 per hour to those who are hired.
For people without cars or access to public transportation, the Congregational Church of Patchogue has come up with an innovative program. The Workers Without Wheels Program donates bicycles year-round to people who would otherwise be unable to commute to their jobs.
Shiny new bicycles frequently top the list of popular Christmas presents. If you've received a new bike and you've outgrown your old one and are looking for a place to unload it, this program would love to take it off your hands. Medium or adult-sized bikes that are in good working condition are what they are looking for.
This is a secular and free program.
