Motorcycle riders make special deliveries

November 21, 2006

Albany--  Some south Georgia families will have a great Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday thanks to an area motorcycle group.

The Hot Boys Motorcycle Club raised money over the past few months to purchase food for families in need. The group went to different churches around town to find out which families needed a good Thanksgiving meal.

Tuesday night, they loaded up turkeys, hams and several pounds of dry and canned goods to deliver to ten families. It's their way of giving back.

"A lot of people see motorcycle riders as just out there riding fast and not doing anything for the community. When you give back, it makes you feel good inside just to help somebody else out," said Hot Boys Motorcycle Club Vice-President Gregg Jackson.

Earlier this year, the club sponsored a back to school bash to give items to school children. They also plan to provide gifts for families this Christmas.
