How You Can Help
The Triangle Spokes Group realizes that people contribute to many charities but we hope you will find a way to help contribute to ours.
Over 4,000 families and 9,000 children will be coming to the Raleigh Salvation Army this year, and they will all be hoping to carry a bicycle home for one of their children. Therefore, we have set a goal in our 17th year to raise $59,000 which will be enough money for 650+ bicycles!
An order will be placed in August for this amount, and because of the momentum from our past 17 years and the great initial response from individuals and corporations to get involved, we feel strongly that we can accomplish our goal.
EVERY dollar of your donation goes to the purchase of a bicycle, with zero administration expense. The Triangle Spokes Group pays for all administration expenses on a personal basis or thanks to donations of services by area businesses. Thanks to the help of the Charlotte chapter we have been able to get a quality NEW assembled bike and helmet for $118.00.
We are happy to provide you cards or mail out cards on your behalf so that you can donate in the name of somebody special.
“IN MEMORY OF”
“IN HONOR OF”
These cards have become very popular to the extent that some donors have purchased as many as ten bicycles, and requested ten cards to be mailed.
All funds raised throughout the Triangle Spokes Group are tax deductible donations and remain in the Triangle Area. The Triangle Spokes Group contributes to the Salvation Army which is a 501(c) (3) organization.
