Taking It To The Community-Mobile Bicycle Repair Shop
On Saturday, May 8, 2021, the HOTC Earn-A-Bike-Program conducted a community service event at St. Henry's Church located on the corner of Hessen Cassle Rd. & Paulding Rd. in Southeast Fort Wayne. Utilizing the new mobile-bike-repair-shop, participants of the program repaired over 25 bicycles belonging to under-served residents of SE Fort Wayne.
Event organizer, Michael Brown said, "The Heart of the City Earn-A-Bike Program is looking forward to conducting more of these 'repair events' in under-served areas of Fort Wayne. Many of the people served today rely on their bicycle to get to and from work and is their primary means of transportation!" Most every Friday throughout the year the program is available for repairs from 9am until noon at the Heart of the City permanent location at 1651 Cass St., Fort Wayne, IN.
