Westfield Police Department Donates 20 Bikes to Westfield Knights of Columbus

On July 15,  Sgt McErlean and Det Lisa Perrotta of the Westfield Police Department donated 20 used bikes to the Westfield Knights of Columbus (KOC). The KOC worked with Warren Rorden (Westfield Rotary Club) to arrange for the bikes to be picked up by Pedals for Progress (www.p4p.org), a nonprofit group that ships the bikes to third world countries to go to people that use them for transportation.  In the attached photo you can see some of the bikes as well as (left to right) Walter Korfmacher (member  Westfield Knights of Columbus), David Schweidenback (President of Pedals for Progress), Detective Lisa Perrotta (Westfield Police Department) and Warren Rorden (member Westfield Rotary Club). Then, Walter Korfmacher added 10 more bikes to make it 30 bikes total to the Pedals for Progress. As shown in the second photo, all 30 bikes were loaded into one pickup truck.
