Do you have a few hours this spring to spread the word about the Pedals for Progress and Sewing Peace used bicycle and sewing machine collection? For 16 years, local volunteers have worked with Pedals for Progress to host successful collections that have touched the lives of more than 1,600 families in the developing world. Over the last 27 years, Pedals for Progress, a New Jersey based 501c3, has received, processed and donated over 153,000 bicycles and 4,000 used sewing machines to partner charities in 38 developing world countries.
