When Bike Law Pennsylvania attorney Joe Piscitello received a call from the Philadelphia Bicycle Coalition asking for his help to “get out the vote”for a contest where they stand to win $100,000, he jumped into action. Not only did his Bike Law Firm get the word out, but so did regional bike shops, organizations and community groups. Within a day, the Pennsylvania and Philadelphia cycling community pushed the message out to thousands of cyclists via social media. According to Attorney Piscitello, he believes the rapid response from the cycling community “…reflects the solidarity and commitment to promote safer infrastructure, laws and culture in our region. The Bike Coalition of Greater Philadelphia is not merely a non-profit organization; they are our advocates and collaborators working tirelessly to improve cycling and pedestrian safety across the state.”
The Bicycle Coalition of Philadelphia is one of three non-profits in the running for a $100K donation from “NRG Gives” a charitable-giving program sponsored by PositiveNRG.
NRG Gives expands NRG’s community outreach across PA, sharing the power of giving with local communities. This award will allow the Bicycle Coalition to expand their impactful work throughout the state of Pennsylvaniato improve cycling infrastructure, laws and community.
