We are very excited to announce that we are teaming up with a wonderful organization Bikes for the World to help provide bikes to new owners worldwide where they will be used to get people to school, work, or health services.
Bikes for the World’s missions are:
*To make quality used bicycles and parts affordable and available to lower income people and select institutions worldwide to enhance their lives and livelihoods through better transport.
*To generate skilled employment in bicycle repair and maintenance overseas, and to provide satisfying environment and humanitarian community service opportunities for volunteers in the United States.
How can you help? You can bring a new or used bike, tubes, tires, bike parts and accessories for donation to Mini Price Storage at 4300 W. Broad Street location from July 15th – August 1st from 10 am – 4 pm. We will serve as a collection center during those dates and times and then transport donated items to Bikes for the World for distribution.
You can also sponsor a bike delivery by donating financially to Bikes for the World online. Each bike costs about $25 to deliver to a qualified program that refurbishes the bike and trains the new owner to ride and maintain the bike. However, any donation amount is welcome!
Your support can help deserving individuals gain affordable transportation in rural areas worldwide. Your old bike could literally help transform lives!
