ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Thanksgiving came early for some Albany families thanks to some warm-hearted bikers.

Members of the Viper Unit Motorcycle Club say they're about more than riding and having fun. They rolled through town Wednesday night, handing out boxes of food.

The group made a stop on Willard Avenue with lots of canned goods and a ham and turkey for the Luke family.

"It's a blessing. It's a blessing from God," said Iderica Luke.

"It makes us feel very good, very good to know that we can do something positive in the community and it also gives the community a better look at us other than just individuals riding on motorcycles," said Marvin Thomas with the Viper Unit Motorcycle Club.

The Viper Unit dropped off food at five homes Wednesday night. They plan to hand out more food boxes for Christmas.
