Life-Cycle's Goal is to purchase 100 BICYCLES from the Huffy Corporation for the homeless.

When you give to Life Cycle Today 100% of the donation goes to help the homeless with transportation.

Having a bicycle may not seem like a big deal to some people, but for a homeless child or adult, it can be life-changing. When you put bicycles into the hands of homeless individuals, you provide them with an opportunity to do things they often cannot achieve on foot: a chance to get a hot meal across town, find a secure shelter for the night, go to a job interview, accept a job, access medical care, or attend school. Suddenly, a bicycle becomes their ticket to independence and a chance for a better life!

The number of people who need that ticket is staggering. Each year, approximately 3.5 million people experience homelessness in the United States, according to the National Coalition for the Homeless. Among the homeless, as many as 1.35 million or more are children. Many cities and towns offer some services for the homeless, yet they can be impossible to reach without transportation.

When a mother has a bicycle, she can ride to a clinic and get medication for her children. Homeless children who receive bikes can attend school and also have something they can call their own. Homeless veterans can pick up their assistance checks and access VA services. And the working homeless — who make up about 17.4 percent of homeless adults in families and 13 percent of homeless single adults or unaccompanied youth--have a reliable means of transportation so they can accept and reach jobs that are beyond walking distance.

The Armory Church and Sound of the House Records are partnering with Cherry Street Mission to provide bicycles in Toledo, Ohio.

You can be a part of this Toledo Community endeavor by being one of our 100 BICYCLE Sponsors!

All donations are tax deductible.

Bikes are brand new coming from Huffy Inc – a lock will be supplied with each bike and stored in the parking lot of CSM.

Help us help our community, and remember: We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
