CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Two New Hampshire organizations are teaming up to collect bicycles for female inmates and teach them to repair them as a job training skill.
Goodwill Industries of Northern New England and the Central New Hampshire Bicycling Coalition will be collecting donated bicycles for female inmates at the Shea Transitional Housing Unit in Concord.
The pilot project is called Recycled Cycles and is designed to benefit the 42 women at the transitional living unit. Corrections officials say the women will not only learn how to repair and maintain the bicycles, but the bicycles will offer them a low cost means of transportation to their jobs outside the facility.
Bicycle donations can be brought to the Goodwill Store on Loudon Road or the S&W Sports — both in Concord.
