DPS Provides Bike Donation to Employment Training Program
On December 1, 2015, DPS coordinated a donation of approximately 100 used bicycles to support a local non-profit, the Bike Shop at The Shops at Devereux.
Established as a valuable tool in the therapeutic process for adults with intellectual challenges, The Shops at Devereux is an array of specialized employment training programs that function like mini-businesses. These shops give our men and women the opportunity to earn a paycheck and learn marketable skills in a realistic work setting, all while giving the community a great product or service at a competitive price. Support of Devereux can help empower the men and women they serve by providing dignified employment opportunities, leading to a path of greater independence.
The Bike Shop repairs bikes of all varieties and sizes (including kids!) as well as accepts donations of previously-owned bikes, which are refurbished and sold across the community, including at Penn.
For more information on bike repairs, purchases or donations, please contact Dorothy Carter, Program Administrator of The Shops at Devereux, at (610) 964-3207 or . You can visit them online at by clicking here.
