Pay It Forward – Donate a Bicycle

 

Pay it forward, donate a bicycle.   The Tomoka Christian Church in Ormond Beach, Florida has aDonate bikes program to accept old bicycles.  They have a team of teenage volunteers who strip and fix the bikes, re-paint them and make them available to those in need who are less fortunate.

 

When I heard about this program I called and told them about the 2 bikes outside my door that the grandchildren are too old to use.  They were delighted to receive the donation of 2 bikes and are scheduled to pick them up later today.

 

If you have old bicycles or parts you would like to donate call the Tomoka Christian Church at 386-677-6455

Hi Al!    That is a great idea and having a couple of teens fix them up makes it even better!   I hope they get tons of support.

Thanks for stopping by to read my blog and to comment this morning Barbara and Cal, I appreciate your comments.  Have a great weekend.

Cal, the teen volunteers is a great idea for the program and may keep some of them out of trouble.

Barbara, it sure is nice  for a kid to have a bike.

Good morning Al. This sort of story always touches me. Sharing what we have with others who have little is a wonderful thing and brings more than we could ever expect.

Paul, thanks for commenting today.  Please do find a similar program in your area and make some less fortunate kids happy.

Sheila, so true, and with them picking up it is even easier than putting the bikes out for the trash.

Al - What a great project and group of volunteers.  And, good for you for donating them.  You made quite a few people happy with that act of kindness.

Al this is a fantastic idea, i wish i could find a program like that in Manchester NH. There has to be one, i just need to find it. I get so many bikes left behind when people move or found in foreclsoed homes that if they can help soemone, it would be a huge plus. Thanks for sharing the inspiration.
