CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH OF PATCHOGUE, NY 11772 - Workers Without Wheels

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.

What a great program.  Bikes are always popular, and this is a wonderful project.  Thanks for sharing this.

Thank you, Roy and a happy and healthy new year to you and Dolores. The colors on those flowers are so vibrant. Fabulous!

Thank you Larry and Sheila. I wish you the best for 2012.

Hi Will - I think it's a very worthy project as getting to work in any mode of transportation is crucial to maintaining the job.

Hi Edward and Celia - Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to comment. All the best to you as well.

Ron - While bikes are not perfect for all weather conditions, it's still better than not being able to get to work at all and it's healthy besides. I like this program.

Jill - there is a young fellow here who started a bike shop called Africycle ..... by collecting unwanted used bicycles in Canada and shipping them to Africa where they are refurbished and sold in one case to support an orphanage.

Kathy - That's terrific. I would think it would be cost prohibitive to ship bicycles to Africa but great that he's making it work.
