The students are collecting used bicycles and then, with their parents, will fix them up (fill tires with air, replace broken pedals, etc.), wash them and give them to People to People, which will give them to children and adults who don’t have bikes.
You can download the flyer for the program here (it’s a Microsoft Word document).
People to people has a list of 60 children who have requested a bicycle. As of Thursday, the group already had collected 28.
They’ll be at People to People, 121 West Nyack Road in Nanuet, from 9 to 11 a.m. tomorrow.
Check your garage and get rid of some bicycles you didn’t even remember you had.
