Massachusetts — A cyclist, Ms. Greene began collecting bikes to donate to struggling teens and women who are domestic violence victims and survivors. CCSW is a city department in Cambridge whose purpose is "to ensure equity for women and girls in all economic, social, political, and educational opportunities throughout the city," according to its website.
Ms. Greene, who commutes to work by bike, said she would also like to provide bikes to individuals on Pretrial probation to help them make their court dates once more court sessions open up post COVID-19.
She is working in collaboration with the Cambridge Police Department and Cambridge Bike, a local business, which are assisting her with the collection and delivery of bicycles as well as the refurbishing and repairing of donated bikes.
"Bikes are perfect for people with transportation challenges. They don't have to worry about parking or if they don't have enough money to take public transportation. Riding a bike is also a great way to exercise and clear your head," Ms. Greene said.
The first bike was donated to Friday Night Hype, a Cambridge-based mentoring program.
