Toledo Gospel Rescue Mission (Toledo, Ohio) was recently in the news when the Mission Mall donated nearly 500 repaired bicycles to the community. Kelly Llanas, the executive director, spoke to reporters, indicating the donations came in last year during the pandemic.
“Here at the mission, we believe that bicycles are not just recreation but means for transportation for a job. It’s really important, and the need is here as folks have been lining up since nine this morning,” she said.
Not only were bicycles provided, but those attending were also able to take advantage of bike repairs consisting of brakes and cables, tires, and much more.
