Pedals for Progress Sept 9, 2017
Now that better weather is here many of us are spring cleaning and possibly thinking of getting rid of unwanted adult or kids bikes.
I want to remind you of a great program called Pedals 4 Progress. http://www.p4p.org/ Rotary of The Palisades partners with this 26 year old organization to rescue bicycles destined for overburdened U.S. landfills and ships them to developing countries where they are sorely needed and highly valued.
Pedals for Progress has collected over 150,000 bikes and has changed countless people’s lives by providing much needed transportation. I can arrange to pick up your bike and store it until we have our collection Saturday, September 9th in Leonia
If you don’t have a bike to donate but would like to contribute in another way we are also raising money to off-set the $10 dollar shipping fee for each bike collected. Any amount is greatly appreciated. We also need volunteers to help on the day of collections to “ready” the bikes for their new owners.
Please contact me if you can contribute bikes, money or time.
Thank you so much!
