Grant Money Buys 32 Bikes for Former Convicts

Bike on the internet selling for $299.95

“STEP” is an acronym for “Support to End Poverty,” a program that works to help with transportation for those who have served time in prison by giving them a set of wheels. The re-entry program works with ex-convicts to help connect them with jobs and housing, but getting from one to the other can often be difficult. That’s where the Harvest Foundation stepped in and awarded the program with a $10,000 grant. 32 bikes have been purchased with the money and the bikes are to arrive at the Chain of Fools Bike Shop uptown in about a week. Our math says those bikes are worth over $300 each, so they should be some fairly nice wheels.
