On Saturday, August 23rd, Whole Foods Market at Interbay (located at 2001 15th Ave W, Seattle, WA 98119) is asking for donated adult-sized bikes and bike parts to be given to students in Togo, West Africa.
The donated bicycles play a significant role in helping bridge the education gap. Togo is located in a rural part of Africa. Studies show that the dropout rate is 3 times higher in rural areas than in cities. Rural families cannot afford private transportation for their children to get to school, and public transportation is not available.
Students who have received bikes in the past have 98% retention rates of staying in school, and 95% passing rates on annual exams, because they finally have reliable transportation to and from school.
So, if you have any old bikes around the house or garage, swing by Whole Foods next Saturday the 23rd between 10am and 2pm and donate to a great cause!
