Rides for Refugees: Bicycle Donation Program
We all need a way to get to work. Whether by car, bike, bus or train, millions of Americans manage that daily commute from home to work. For newly resettled refugees that step off of the plane with next to nothing but their dignity, hope and determination, the challenge is acute. The IRC provides opportunities for these refugees to thrive in America. Each year, thousands of refugees are invited by the U.S. government to seek safety and freedom. Forced to flee conflict or persecution, many have survived for years against incredible odds. In Wichita, the IRC helps them to rebuild their lives and become self-sufficient. Our record of success in quickly locating entry-level positions for resettled refugees has necessitated a growing need for bicycles and we need your help!
Clean out your garage and donate to a great cause. The IRC in Wichita is accepting donations for new or used bicycles, helmets, locks and other bike accessories. All donations must be in working condition.
• Refugees often rely on bicycles for a main source of transportation.
• Your tax-deductible donation goes directly to benefit a refugee in Wichita.
