A lack of transportation is one of the hurdles many veterans face when looking for work and it’s one of the obstacles Central Alabama Veterans Health Care System wants to remove for its veterans.
On Monday, the Goodwill Industries of Central Alabama teamed up with the CAVHCS to kick-off the donation drive, “Good Wheels for Veterans.” In the month of May, those in the River Region can drop off gently used bikes at any one of Goodwill’s six donation drop-off sites or stores in Montgomery and Prattville.
Collecting bicycles is one of the ways to meet the needs of veterans looking for employment, but who simply cannot afford to purchase a vehicle.

Kevin Seller, the community employment coordinator at CAVHCS, works with nearly 50 veterans who are either homeless or who can’t afford to pay for bus fare. His job is to help remove the barriers preventing them from finding jobs.
“We wanted to resolve that issue for our veterans,” Seller said. “Once they get their bike, it will help them progress to the next level of finding employment.”
