St. John the Evangelist in Hopkinton is collecting bicycles in conjunction with the Bikes-Not-Bombs (BNB) program in Jamaica Plain. Donated bikes directly benefit communities in the developing world as well as teens in Boston through their Earn-A-Bike and Girls in Action programs. People use bikes in developing countries in the same way we use cars, trucks and buses--they improve access to everything--water, food, employment opportunities, schools and healthcare.
