Donate bikes at PCC and help kids in Africa get to school
I've worked here nearly three months now and still each day I learn of some new way PCC helps the community. This month, it's raising money for Children's Hospital (5 percent of all Kid Picks item sales goes to the cause).
Come summer, our "community" will stretch around the globe. You may remember our first Alaffia Bike Drive last spring, when you helped us donate 500 used bikes to help boys and girls get to and from school in Togo, West Africa. (as we all know, bikes sure beat walking, especially when you're walking upwards of 18 miles roundtrip. It also makes a lot more time for homework).
We get a second chance this year to put all those used bikes just sitting around in the garage to good use. My colleague Angela is THRILLED to pull together this event again because she really believes in the cause. Stay tuned for details, but the drives will be going on 11 a.m.-3 p.m. July 25 at Edmonds PCC and 11 a.m.-3 p.m. July 26 at View Ridge PCC. We'll accept bikes in any condition, plus bike parts.
PCC sells Alaffia's sustainable skin care products, which include fair trade shea butter from Togo. This is one way Alaffia gives back to its community. We're proud to help.
