For those experiencing situational poverty, transportation insecurity is a leading cause for extending the period of time in which an individual remains in harmful circumstances. The ability to move is essential to escaping the cycle of poverty: commuting to work, going to school, reaching a supermarket, attending meetings, staying in touch with loved ones. The freedom to move as desired is directly tied to our ability to
support ourselves.

This is why Saint Vincent de Paul Trumbull is actively looking for new, gently used and recycled bicycles to be donated! For many in our community, transportation is a luxury – but it does not need to be. If you own bikes that go seasons unused, your children have grown out of or are purchasing a new one and no longer need your older model, please consider donating to our thrift shop. Mobility is opportunity. If you are able,
please pass that grace onto someone in our community!
