CHICAGO – To encourage civic service, assist community members and promote physical fitness, state Rep. Fran Hurley is partnering with state Sen. Bill Cunningham to host a Community Bike Drive for local residents to donate used bicycles.

“Donating a used bike provides a wonderful gift to someone while helping the community,” Hurley said. “We think this is a great way to assist local residents, encourage charity and get more people riding bikes. Sen. Cunningham and I are excited to be providing this service to the district.”
The bike drive will take place Aug. 15 through Sept. 15. All donations can be dropped off at the Mount Greenwood Community Business Association at 3330 W. 111th St. in Chicago, behind La Fiesta restaurant. Owned by local resident John DeBold, Park Schwinn at 3333 W. 95th St. in Evergreen Park will be fixing up old bikes and donating them to less fortunate children.
