TRANSFORMING LIVES ONE BICYCLE AT A TIME
The Smoketown Rotary Club of Brunswick, MD is already collecting used-yet-serviceable bicycles for this year’s Community Bicycle Collection to be hosted by the Rotary Club of Carroll Creek on Earth Day, Saturday, April 22, 2023.
To augment the Smoketown Rotary Club’s bike collection the club is rallying its two Interact Clubs - Middletown High School and Brunswick High School - to collect bikes within their respective campus communities.
Bikes can be dropped off on April 1 10am-12pm at the Canal Stewards Clean Up Day at the Brunswick Boat Ramp.
The 17th annual community bicycle collection will be conducted at Triangle Motors (1790 North Market Street, Frederick) from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM on Saturday, April 22nd.
The bicycles and bike accessories collected will be directed to Rockville, Maryland-based Bikes for the World, which will ship them to NGO partners in developing regions of the world, where local residents will recondition the bikes (thereby creating local jobs) and distribute them to school children in rural villages.
