Project ReCycle Donates Bikes to those in Need
The once empty fourth floor of Castle Rock‘s Adventist Hospital is now home to a new organization, Project ReCycle. Covered in donated bicycles, the vacant floor has become storage for future kids’, and some adults, wishes. Volunteers are repairing the ones to make them look new again, since they now have a venue for their non-profit.
Since the hospital is for ill and recovering patients they are still letting them use the facilities temporarily, at least until they really need the space. Project ReCycle is located at 2350 Meadows Boulevard, if you want to drop off bikes for small children to adult-sized. According to Castle Rock News-Press, the vice chairman of ReCycle, Jeff Fleck, wants to make people happy. “When you give that to a child … that’s what you get to feel,” he said. And he talked further about the experience of that, the child’s new sense of freedom, the feeling of ownership, and pride and responsibility.
The organization is always looking for more bikes, no matter what age or condition they are in, someone will be there to fix it. Even parts of bikes that could be used again to restore a slightly impaired one would be helpful.
