Have any used bikes? Pennswood looking for your donations
If you have bicycles at home gathering dust in the garage or in the basement, here’s a chance to make someone’s life a little better through your donation. The Pennswood sillage oesidents Association holding its 6th annual bike donation drive for Bikes for the World on Saturday, Sept. 29 from 9 a.m. to noon, rain or shine.
Bikes for the World will ship the donated bicycles to developing countries, where they will be reconditioned and distributed at modest cost to low income people in need of reliable transportation.
Tax-deductible receipts will be available for the value of the bicycles as well as cash donations. A donation toward shipping costs is requested (suggested minimum: $10 per bike).
Bikes may be old; tires may be flat. That’s no problem. But they must be in repairable condition and have no more than a little rust.
Children’s as well as adult bikes, but no tricycles will be accepted. Bikes for the World also accepts donations of working electric portable sewing machines.
