    Recycled Bike Highlights:
    • Devereux's bike program focuses on assisting developmentally disabled individuals in the acquisition of the skills needed to secure successful competitive employment in the community.
    • These workshops give individuals the opportunity to learn marketable skills in a realistic work setting. Workers receive paychecks for the work they do, and learn how to budget and save the money they earn.
    • We are inviting Devereux back to campus for a “bike sale.” Rehabbed bikes will be available for sale to faculty, staff and students.
    • Bike sales usually occur in early September to accommodate incoming Freshman.
    This is truly a sustainable endeavor. Not only are we recycling something no longer wanted, but we are providing the means to teach disabled individuals a skill. We are also providing a service to incoming freshman.
    Refurbished/Recycled bikes are also available on a need basis. Please contact Claudia Kent for more information, ckent@haverford.edu.
