The Helmets for Homeless program is located at the Bloomfield Senior Center. We take bicycles in good working order and gift them to folks who may need them for transportation purposes. We take child and adult bikes as well as helmets, safety clothing, bike locks, etc. Bicycles must be ready to ride. If you would like to donate your bicycle and/or bicycling articles, please contact Jessica at 632-8351. We can also come and pick them up. The Helmets for Homeless Program is part of the Committee for Health Equity. Receipts for donated bikes may be given out for tax purposes.

Items needed at the Bloomfield Senior Center Include:

• Sun shade for outdoor eating area

• Yarn for community knitting projects

• End tables for our rec room (2-3 in good condition)

If you have any of these items, please contact Jessica, 632-8351.
