Trips for Kids need your help!

Postby gt2brew » Wed May 15, 2013 6:27 am

Trips for Kids is a multi-national non-profit organization with 80 independent chapters that provide mountain bike outings and environmental education for at risk kids ages 10-18 who would not otherwise have these opportunities. Many of the kids we work with live in low income inner city neighborhoods and are faced with many troubled paths.

Trips for Kids Jersey Off Road Bicycle Association (TFK JORBA) is a program operating under the umbrella of JORBA and serves the entire state of New Jersey. We became a TFK chapter in 2012 and had a very successful first year riding with two agencies, one located in Asbury Park, NJ and the other from Bayonne, NJ. For 2013 we have 10 rides planned including 6 with groups/agencies that work with kids as well as 4 rides open to the public.

One of our biggest challenges is transporting and storing our growing fleet of 15+ bikes and the necessary safety equipment to the trails. In our first year we rode with small groups of kids using a pickup for transporting, this year we will be riding with larger groups and also need to keep unused equipment secure while we are out on the trails with the kids.

The estimated cost to purchase a 6’ X 12’ enclosed trailer is $5,100.00 which includes the trailer, registration, materials to build bike and equipment storage, and large TFK JORBA decals for each side.

We ask that you consider a monetary donation to help fund the purchase of the enclosed trailer for transporting our fleet of bikes and safety equipment to the locations that we ride. In return we will recognize your donation on our JORBA website, social networking sites, and on the trailer that will be travelling to many events.

Donations are accepted by sending a check to:

Trips For Kids/JORBA
PO BOX 673
Princeton Junction, NJ 08850

Please make the check payable to JORBA, and note TFK on the memo line.

JORBA is a 501(c)3 tax exempt, non-profit organization. Donations to TFK/JORBA are tax-deductible where allowable by law. Tax ID: 22-3667526

Sincerely,

Joseph Santana
