The Carlisle, PA Panera Bread location is offering to donate a portion of their revenue on October 16th from 4-8. Come enjoy a delicious meal, and help PET build more bikes for those who need them.
On October 23rd, the Mount Holly Springs Halloween Parade will feature PET as one of the features in the parade. Rep. Torren Ecker and others will be riding the PET bikes in the parade. This is a great opportunity to outreach to the community about these bikes, and the service that PET serves to the global community.
We are still looking for people interested in riding with Torren. We need people who can come at 5:30 PM to line up in the parade, and ride one of the bikes the entire length of the parade. Anyone interested in helping ride the bikes, please email PET Carlisle.
Representative Torrin Ecker will be riding a PET cart during the Mt Holly Springs Parade, which will be taking place on October 23rd. This will be a great opportunity to educate the public. PET is looking for additional volunteers to ride carts with Torrin. If you would like to volunteer, please contact PET.
This week, a driver will be transporting 60 carts to Sierra Leone, given to recipients of those receiving surgery. The carts will help them be able to have their mobility back. We are looking for a driver to volunteer to deliver them to New Jersey. A church will be holding them until ready to ship.
If you are a driver, please reach out to email@example.com and let us know you are interested, and what the requirements of the shipping truck need to be for delivery. This will help us not have to pay for a commercial driver to deliver the carts.
In October, PET will be sending 60 carts across the ocean to Sierra Leone. These carts will be shipped from Morristown, NJ.
Our current needs are:
A driver to pickup the 60 carts and deliver them to Morristown. The truck delivering the carts needs to have a lift, and the truck cannot be a full size truck due to restrictions.
If we are unable to find a driver to volunteer, PET is looking for donations to support paying a commercial driver to deliver the carts.
Arrival of the carts needs to be on October 1st or 2nd.
On Saturday November 4th we had Scouts from Troop 185 come help at the PET workshop. They enlisted Sheetz to help collect plastic bottles and milk jugs for packing and 6 garbage bags of materials for packing were collected and delivered. These items keep the PET wheelchairs safe during their long transcontinental journey. Thank you, Sheetz and thank you Troop 185!
In addition to making mobility wheelchairs, the workshop is busy on Wednesday mornings 9-12 making crafts for sale to raise money for supplies. There are snowflakes for your yard as well as round tree decorations which have just been shellacked.
