Reed Tech is an important part of Bikes for the World because their availability to join us during the week for a loading day, frees us up to focus on our bike collections on the weekend.
While we waited for the container to be delivered on Friday, the Reed Tech crew worked to help us prep bikes that ultimately ended up in this donated shipment. They also helped organize our warehouse in preparation for our busy spring collection season, which stared this weekend.
Starting off our spring season we hosted three collection sites over the weekend. Those three sites brought in another 150 bikes. Reed Tech played a critical role in getting the warehouse ready to receive those bikes when they arrived.
During our work session Reed Tech employees helped us quickly finish the container heading to Guinea-Bissau before another container arrived that would need to be loaded for another new partner in Madagascar.
The program in Guinea-Bissau is largely focused on helping farmers and Madagascar is geared toward assisting Health Care Workers better care for patients.
