Annie’s Ace Hardware Collecting Old Bikes and Sewing Machines on June 10th

Annie’s ACE Hardware is participating for a third year in a row in the collection of old bicycles and sewing machines on June 10th for Bikes for the World. Both Annie’s Petworth and Brookland locations are participating. Below are the details from Annie’s.

Annies ACE Hardware is hosting a bike collection for Bikes for the World (BFTW) and is offering a free $20 gift card for each adult bike donated.

BFTW is a DC-based organization that has collected and distributed 125,000 bikes to 20 countries in the past 10 years.  BFTW’s mission is to make quality used bicycles and parts affordable and available to lower income people and select institutions in developing countries, to enhance their lives and livelihoods through better transport.  It also works to generate skilled employment in bicycle repair and maintenance overseas, and to provide satisfying environmental and humanitarian community service opportunities for volunteers in the United States.

This year Annies ACE will host BFTW collections June 10 at both of their DC stores (see below)  What we will collect:

  • Any serviceable complete (or nearly-complete) bicycle, adult or children’s, accompanied by a suggested $10 per bike donation to help defray a share of the costs in getting bikes to quality programs overseas and get information back for donors and the public. Flat tires or a missing seat or pedal is ok. (No rust-buckets or big wheels please.
  • Usable bicycle SPARE PARTS and components, including tubes, tires, wheels, chains, pedals, saddles, cables, and mountain bike handlebars·
  • We also collect good-quality metal portable sewing machines in working order, or close to it.
