Newtown Rotary will hold its 12th Annual Bike & Sewing Machine Collection on Saturday October 25th. Bikes can be dropped off from 9:00am to noon, rain or shine at Council Rock North High School, 62 Swamp Road, Newtown (between the gym and Walt Snyder Football Stadium).
Anyone with an adult or child’s bicycle in repairable condition is urged to donate his or her bike to this worthy cause. “Bikes for parts” or disassembled bikes cannot be accepted. In addition, working portable sewing machines are also welcome. It costs $40 to collect, process, ship, rebuild and distribute each bicycle. A donation toward shipping costs is necessary (suggested minimum $10 per bike). Pedals for Progress is a 501 (c)3 corporation and a registered charity in the states of NJ, NY, PA, CT, VT, IA.
