Eugene Mission Seeks Used Bikes

Bikes offer transportation freedom from expensive car ownership. To help more people attain that freedom, the Eugene Mission has begun collecting used bikes which are repaired and then given to Mission guests.

The program wants to build on its success. As the Eugene Mission Director of Strategic Operations and Resources Tabitha Eck said, “As a result of generously donated bikes and the tireless work of our Bike Shop volunteers and guest helpers, the Eugene Mission is excited to offer refurbished bikes to our guests with transportation barriers who are working and seeking employment in the community.”

To keep the program successful, the Eugene Mission needs your used bikes. In just the last three months the bike program has provided 40 bikes, with a goal to rebuild and distribute two bikes per week. To keep up with this goal, they have a goal of eight donated bikes a month.

To donate: visit the donation center at 1509 W 1st Ave in Eugene (next to the bike shop). Hours are Monday to Saturday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. For questions or for bike donation pick-up contact: furniture@eugenemission.org or 541-344-3251 x167.
