Whole Foods (2001 15th Ave. W.) will collect used adult-sized bikes and bike parts on Saturday, Aug. 23, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The donated bikes will be distributed to students in Togo, West Africa, through Alaffia’s Bicycles for Education program (www.alaffia.com/bicycles.asp).

According to Alaffia, 95 percent of girls who participate graduate — a reversal of a 40-percent dropout rate.
