Announcing PROJECT RE-CYCLE: Our 3t Ministry Bike Program

3t Ministry Bike Program Receives Own Name

donated bikeIt’s official friends, PROJECT RE-CYCLE will be the new name for our bike program here at 3t Ministry.

We invited our Facebook fans and friends to vote and suggest names for our bike program.  The decision to name the program was made by Executive Director late last year.  “We are committed to our Christian Values and that has been the core for 3t Ministry since the beginning.  Last year we found out that donors were more apt to donate a bike once they found out what 3T was all about.  After listening to our donors, we understood the need for a name that would give us immediate identity without having to explain what we did. We asked for suggestions for a name that clearly identified what we do…give away bikes. I think our fans and friends picked the right name.” Read more

Our Tax Exempt Determination letter has arrived

We serve a God that has blessed us enormously.

“This Saturday I checked the mail and was surprised with a letter from the IRS.  “We are pleased to inform you…” starts the letter” commented AJ Stapleton this morning via email.

He Continued “I read the 1 page letter over and over trying to make sense of it.  Our acceptance took only 1 month.  I had heard from numerous groups that their applications for tax Exemption and public charity have taken as long as 13 months to be approved.  That most of them had ran their applications by lawyers and accountants only to find out that it was missing information.  Robert and I can’t thank you enough for all your support and prayers during the initial stages of getting our letter of Exemption.”
