Pedals for Progress rescues bicycles and sewing machines destined for overburdened U.S. landfills and ships them to developing countries where they are sorely needed and highly valued. P4P bikes are put to work not only as basic transportation, but are used as a supplement to school and community programs. The bikes are adapted for use as trash haulers, produce trucks, taxis, and farm machinery.

  • Twenty-Nine Year Bicycle Grand Total: 159,113.
  • Twenty Year Sewing Machine Grand Total: 5,179.

Next collection: Saturday 3/28/2020 9am-12pm at St. Mary School, 538 Church Street, Middletown, NJ 07748

Your bike or sewing machine will travel a very long distance to a new home, so we request that a $10 contribution accompany each bike/machine to help with overseas shipping expenses. As always, you will be supplied with a tax-deductible receipt for the value of the sewing machine plus any monetary contribution at the time of donation.
