The Salvation Army SCV accepts donations for “Pedal Home: Bike, Helmet Drive”
Starting in October, the Salvation Army’s Santa Clarita Valley Corps is expected to organize a bicycle and helmet drive and is accepting old and used bikes to distribute to those in need.
For those looking to give back to those in need in the Santa Clarita community, the Salvation Army SCV Corps should distribute a range of local bicycles to those who do not have reliable transportation and accept donations in October.
“There are a lot of people in our community without reliable transportation and having their own bikes would allow them easy access to work, school and shopping,” said Laura Bloom Moore, officer in charge of the SCV corps. , in a press release last week. . “We encourage the community of Santa Clarita to take these old, no longer used bikes out of their garages and donate them to someone in need.”
Bikes of all sizes are welcome, but must be in working order.
Once bikes and helmets are donated, they should be tuned in for their new owner. Project organizers should then distribute the bikes to members of the Santa Clarita community, according to Salvation Army SCV officials.

The donation deposit begins on October 18 and continues on October 20, 22, 23, 25, 27 and 28 between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Salvation Army offices at 22935 Lyons Avenue.
The Salvation Army Santa Clarita Valley Corps offers a wide range of programs to local people in need, helping to provide food, clothing, essentials, vacation help, addiction resources, aid to disaster recovery and services for the elderly.
