DPS Donates Bicycles to the Shops at Devereux
As part of an effort to reduce the number of abandoned bicycles on campus, Public Safety collects and donates unwanted bikes to non-profit groups. This year’s donations were shared with the The Shops at Devereux, where they have a Bike Shop that can make good use of the bikes.
Founded in 1962,The Shops at Devereux is a vocational training center composed of several workshops that function as small businesses. These businesses give our individuals the opportunity to learn marketable skills in a realistic work setting. This allows them to learn socially appropriate behaviors as they work toward employment within the local community. Workers receive paychecks for the work they do, and learn how to budget and save the money they earn.
Visit The Shops located in Devon, Pennsylvania, Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
The program focuses on assisting individuals with developmental delays in the acquisition of the skills needed to secure successful competitive employment in the community. The program also offers job skills, education and assessment, situational assessments, employment task analysis, career development counseling, academic and tutorial services, and also acts as a liaison to help businesses comply with the American Disabilities Act regulations.
