Revolve KC recently accepted donations in connection with a fundraiser at Whole Foods Market, 91st and Metcalf, Overland Park, Kan.
Five percent of the store sales on a recent day was donated to the Earn-a-Bike program sponsored by Revolve KC. According to Liz Bejan, the founder of Revolve KC, it was a huge success.
“We got a lot of donations and this will help us out greatly,” she said.
Revolve KC is the only program where youths may take a bike safety test and receive a reconditioned bicycle. With the summer months coming and the many bike trails that there are in the Kansas City area, bicycling would be a great way to get fit and a way to save gasoline as well.
Revolve KC has an office at 554 Central Ave., Kansas City, Kan.
