Pedals for Progress collects thousands of bicycles annually and sends this material wealth to needy people in developing countries. More than 62,000 bicycles have been shipped to countries in Latin America, Africa, and the Pacific Islands. In these countries, the bikes are reconditioned by partner agencies and distributed at low cost to poor working adults. These bikes provide them with reliable transportation for commuting to work, transporting produce to market, or accessing health care and other services. Steady employment for these adults is vital to the development and success for these economies.
It costs $30.00 to process, ship, rebuild, and distribute each bicycle. A $10.00 fee per bicycle is required to help defray shipping costs. All cash and material donations are fully tax-deductible, and a receipt will be available at the collection site. A few other items such as bicycle helmets and working sewing machines, both electric and non-electric, are acceptable, but the only charge is for bicycles ($10.00/bike) and sewing machines ($10.00/sewing machine).
The following are acceptable:
- Bicycles in reasonably good condition ($10.00/bicycle)
- Bike helmets (no charge)
- Sewing machines (electric or non-electric) in good condition ($10.00 per sewing machine)
The following are NOT acceptable:
- Bikes for parts only
- Disassembled bikes
- Bikes with bent frames, or very rusty frames
- Other sporting goods
Pedals for Progress is a 501-(C)-(3) corporation and registered charity in the states of NJ, PA, VA, CT, MA, and VT. Brochures explaining this innovative program will be available at the collection site.
