Pedals 4 Progress Bike & Sewing Machine Collection!

Pedals for Progress, is an annual bike and sewing machine collection. It has been  an ongoing  collection project for nearly 20 years. This year  Montpelier has been added as a  collection location and National life has generously donated their parking lot space to do the collection.

Since 1999, Vermonters have shipped more than 4,000 bikes and 600 sewing machines from Vermont to community projects in El Salvador, Nicaragua, Sierra Leone, Ghana, Tanzania, Uganda, Moldova, Fiji, and Vietnam.

  1. If you have a bike and/or sewing machine gathering dust, please bring it on September 24 to National Life, from 3:30 to 7 p.m.to make a donation! Pedals for progress are asking for a $15 donation with each item to help cover shipping.
  1. If you can share this information below to any folks/organizations/church groups, etc that you think would be interested, that would be greatly appreciated!
