Pedals for Progress

Bike collection for FB 10.29.23

Chester County Solid Waste Authority will be sponsoring a Used Bicycle and Sewing Machine drive for the organization Pedals for Progress.

This year our event will be held at the West Goshen Municipal Complex on Sunday October 29, 2023, from 12:00pm-3:00pm.

Thank you to Lisa Covatta and the Public Works staff in West Goshen Township for offering their site again.


Attached is a flyer you can use on your website and newsletters, and a social media post.

Pedals for Progress will also promote this event on Event Brite.


Please help us publicize! You can also tell your Police Departments, and if they have bicycles that can be donated for this charitable cause, please let me know.


This event is a great way for people to get rid of their gently used unwanted bikes and sewing machines and to ultimately help those in need to improve their economic conditions.    You can direct people to Pedals for Progress website here:      Donations are tax deductible, including the value of the bicycle or sewing machine.


The generous residents of Chester County have already donated more than 130 bicycles and sewing machines, and $2400 to help pay for shipping to Pedals for Progress’ partner countries.
