Time: 8 a.m. - 11 a.m.

*Monthly collection site will be at Hawai'i Community College*

(1175 Manono Street, Hilo - Behind Building 385 A)

Used bikes and bike parts are needed for a Bike Repair Class being conducted at KCF where inmates will be learning bike repair and maintenance skills. Refurbished bikes will be transferred to the Hale Nani Work Furlough program so that the men and women on work furlough will be able to use them to get to and from work and other programming. Skills learned in the Bike Repair Class will also enable individuals to repair their own bikes and possibly gain future employment.

Children's bikes are also being accepted in an effort to provide refurbished bikes to children through the Children's Justice Centers of Hilo and Kona.
