inWhatLanguage is committed to doing good in the community. As members of the South Salt Lake Community in Utah, we are always looking for ways to give back. In addition to our main social impact strategy of donating translations at no-cost to local schools to assist English Language Learners and other causes around the world we always look for ways for our team to get involved.
In May we had a team building event and at the event we built 5 children’s bicycles to donate to the Salt Lake Bicycle Collective. The Bicycle Collective’s mission is to promote cycling as an effective and sustainable form of transportation, recreation, and as a cornerstone of a cleaner, healthier, and safer society. The Collective provides refurbished bicycles and educational programs to the community, focusing on children and lower income households.
One of the reasons we decided to donate the bikes we built to the Salt Lake Bicycle Collective is their commitment to helping Salt Lake’s substantial refugee community. It is estimated that there are close to 50,000 refugees in the state of Utah, many of whom reside in Salt Lake City. The Salt Lake Bicycle Collective utilizes funds from its bike sales to provide bikes to not only refugees but also veterans in need and recently released prisoner in transition.
As a company, we realize the importance of bicycles as a mode of transportation for many Utahns to get to work, school, and healthcare providers. We know that the children’s bikes we donated may allow students to more easily get to school, but also to get exercise and gain an appreciation for cycling. We are happy to support the Salt Lake Bicycle Collective and our community.
