Refugee Resettlement Committee: The Pedal Project 

The Pedal Project is a collaboration between First Unitarian Church of Salt Lake City Refugee Resettlement Committee and the International Rescue Committee (IRC). The purpose of the Pedal Project is to provide free, gently used bicycles, new helmets, lights and bicycle locks to newly arriving refugee families in Salt Lake City. Donated bicycles are picked up my members of the Refugee Resettlement Committee who will provide a tax donation receipt.
