Bikers donate thousands to Toys for Tots

December 10, 2006

Albany -- Bikers in Albany rev up support for the Marine Corps Logistics Base and Salvation Army Toys for Tots campaign. Hundreds of bikers pull into the K-Mart parking lot bearing gifts, food and money.

The Remaining Few Motorcycle Club hosts the event each year with help from several sponsors. The group meets in East Albany and the big group parades through town to deliver the toys. Bikers say it's a good feeling to give.

"It gives us an opportunity to help families around here that at this time of the year can't help themselves," said biker Teresa McKinley.

"All of us are fortunate enough to be healthy, and have kids and families, and might as well help someone else who's not so fortunate," said biker Richie Brown.

The group collects up to 3,000 toys for children each year. This is the last week Toys for Tots is collecting toys. You can bring donations to the main drop off site at the K-Mart parking lot off Dawson Road.
