    Do you have a used bicycle you no longer need? Put it to good use by donating it to Pedals for Progress (P4P). The collection is sponsored by the Cranford Rotary Club. Adult and children’s bicycles (except tricycles) in repairable condition are needed. P4P collects 5,000 to 7,000 bicycles annually. To date, more than 140,000 have been shipped to developing countries in Latin America, Africa, and Eastern Europe. In these countries, the bikes are reconditioned by partner agencies and distributed at low cost to poor working adults. The bikes provide them with reliable transportation for commuting to work, transporting products to market, and accessing health care and other services. It costs $40 to collect, process, ship, rebuild, and distribute each bicycle. THEREFORE, A DONATION TOWARD SHIPPING COSTS IS NECESSARY. (THE SUGGESTED MINIMUM DONATION PER BIKE IS $10). All cash and material donations are fully tax deductible, and receipts will be available at the collection site. P4P is a 501(c)(3) corporation and a registered charity in New Jersey.
