Chain Reaction is a newly formed Arizona non-profit corporation whose mission is to provide refurbished bicycles, helmets and bike safety information to homeless and/or low-income residents of the Verde Valley who are in need of transportation and cannot afford a bicycle.
Chain Reaction's President and VVCC Member, Heather Parris reached out to Rich Leever of the VVCC seeking help with Chain Reaction's mission accomplishment. Under a recently signed Partnership Assistance Agreement through at least the remainder of 2017, the VVCC will assist Chain Reaction in
- obtaining its 501(c)3 designation from the IRS;
- bicycle refurbishment expense reimbursement;
- volunteer recruitment
- donations; and
- business consultation
"Chain Reaction is always in need of used bicycles and help fixing them. Monetary donations for helmets, bike parts and locks are always welcome. If you want to give back to those in need of transportation in the Verde Valley please keep Chain Reaction in mind" stated Parris. "I really look forward to partnering with the VVCC" added Parris.
"the VVCC really wants Chain Reaction to be successful" added Leever, "and are willing to help in any way we can."
