Do you have an unused bike sitting in your garage, basement or shed just collecting dust?
The Montgomery/Rocky Hill Rotary Club will be collecting bicycles to benefit Bikes for the World on Saturday, September 28th between 9AM and 1PM. The event will be held rain or shine in the parking lot of the Blawenburg Reformed Church located at 424 Route 518 in Skillman.
Adult and kids bikes are accepted in all types (road bikes, mountain bikes, hybrids) provided that they are in repairable condition (please no bikes with rusted frames). In order to help defray the shipping costs, we are requesting a $10 donation per bike donated (not mandatory).
Since 2005, Bikes for the World has been partnering with community organizations in the Mid-Atlantic region to collect 150,000 bikes and sending them to carefully vetted charitable organizations in over 25 developing countries around the world where they transform lives one bike at a time! These bikes become a valuable form of transportation which allow people to get to work, allow them to do more work because they can travel farther than by just walking, increase educational opportunities as well as improve access to healthcare.
So, while this bike collection helps with economic development in developing countries, it also helps the environment by keeping usable resources out of our landfills. Win-win.
This is the first year the Montgomery/Rocky Hill Rotary Club is doing a collection on behalf of Bikes for the World. One its members was instrumental in getting these collections started at his old Rotary club in Frederick, MD where they have now collected over 5,000 bikes in ten years. The goal is to establish this as annual event here in our area.
