That bicycle collecting dust (not rust!) in your garage could make a world of difference in the developing world.
Morristown High School’s Interact Club will be collecting used bikes on Sept. 21, 2013, to send to Ghana, Albania, Costa Rica and Guatemala. It’s part of a program called Pedals for Progress.
The collection runs from noon to 3 pm at the high school, at 50 Early St, rain or shine.
Bikes should be rust-free; it’s okay if they have flat tires and need minor repairs. No tricycles, please. Portable sewing machines in good working condition also are being rounded up.
You also will be asked for a $10 donation for each item, for shipping. The donations and the items are tax-deductible.
For more details, call teacher Danielle Firavanti at 973-292-2300 or Pedals for Progress at 908-638-4811.
