When BWCIL Employment Navigator, Kathy, found that transportation was a barrier to some of our clients, she contacted Port Huron Police about their bicycle donation program. The P.D. came through for our clients in a great way by donating 6 bikes. A huge THANK-YOU to the Port Huron Police Department for donating the bikes and to Art Payne who volunteered to pick-up and deliver the bikes to our office!!!
Two of the adults looking for employment assistance received a new way to be able to travel to their new workplaces. The other four bikes were received by students in our G.E.D. prep program to help them get to our office for learning, to their jobs, and maybe a little fresh air exercise and fun. There were so many youth interested in the bikes that we decided the fairest way to distribute was to have all of those that wanted to write their name on a slip of paper and draw names. The four lucky winners will put their wheels to good use!!!
