Holy Trinity is sponsoring a bicycle drive on May 11 from 10-2 PM in support of the activities of Boston nonprofit Bikes Not Bombs.
Each year Bikes Not Bombs collects roughly 5,000 used bicycles and tons of used parts from supporters around Greater Boston and New England, and ships most of these bikes overseas to economic development projects through international partners in Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean. Some of the bikes are repurposed in its Youth Programs where teens learn bicycle safety and mechanics skills in the process of earning bikes to keep for themselves.
The organization's retail Bike Shop in Jamaica Plain also reconditions and sells some of the donated bikes that it receives, while employing many graduates of its programs. The Shop's profit from the bicycle sales, parts sales, and repairs goes towards funding youth and international work.
