Community Collaboration: Bikes for Refugees

Our next repost is from our older Refugee Services blog. RIS thrives through partnerships and collaboration with various community organizations. One such collaboration was with the PedNet Coalition, a pedestrian and pedaling network that advocates building healthy and active communities. In March of 2011, PedNet donated bikes to RIS for an “Earn a Bike” program, which is explained in this Columbia Tribune article. Read about it below, or read the original here.


New Starts, New Beginnings: The Refugee Garden

While we work on the site, we will be reposting posts and content from our previous RIS blogs.

This post, the blog’s first, was from September 28, 2009 and introduced the fledgling project. Read it below or at the original site.
