City Donates Bicycles to Community Agencies, Volunteer Groups

The City of Fredericton has once again donated unclaimed lost, stolen or abandoned bicycles to community agencies and volunteer groups for use by at-risk youth, the disadvantaged and vulnerable citizens.

This year’s beneficiaries of the City’s Bikes for the Community program include: Fredericton Youth Residential Services; Christ Church Cathedral Outreach; the Fredericton John Howard Society; Fredericton Boy’s and Girl’s Club; and Doone Street/Wilson Row Tenants Association.

Created in 2007, the Bikes for the Community Program provides unclaimed, lost and found bicycles to community agencies and volunteer groups to distribute to their clients for recreational, transportation and social opportunities.
