THE SALE OF THE REPAIRED BIKES HELP FUND HOMELESS SERVICES
FROM THEIR SITE:
"Fleet Street’s bicycle mechanics include residents of Pacific Lodge Youth Services in Woodland Hills who are trained by dedicated volunteers. The young men ages 13 to 18 are in the juvenile justice system and Fleet Street, a non-profit organization, provides them with a meaningful vocational program that builds skills as well as character.
Fleet Street’s Dana Sherman, their President Steve Musnicky, and San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission director Wade Trimmer built on their relationship to create a winning partnership. We typically receive over 100 bikes per month through our mission Thrift Stores, but most of them really need work in order to be safe and sellable. The young men from Pacific Lodge are fixing them and then we sell them in our Reseda store, with proceeds supporting both the Mission and Fleet Street.
The boys gain valuable work experience, our homeless outreach programs get a much-needed boost through the sale proceeds, and the customer gets a quality bike for a very reasonable price, with a 90-day guarantee. It’s really a win-win-win! We are so grateful to Fleet Street for our partnership on this."
We suggest that if you NEED A BIKE you call San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission!
