ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Hundreds of bikers revved their engines Sunday to help bring Christmas to South Georgia families in need. This is the 25th anniversary for the Remaining Few Motorcycle club bike run.
The group invited other area biker clubs to help them with the benefit for the Salvation Army. The run began at the Harvey's at Five Points where they collected toys.
They then rode to K-Mart for a celebration and presentation that they know will be greatly needed during the current tough times.
"I wish we could do more. We all wish we could do more especially now with the way the economy is. There are a lot of families who are not as fortunate as we are. But hopefully the few that we are going to help, their Christmas will be great," said Juan Moreno.
The Remaining Few Motorcycle Club will immediately start to raise money and toys for next year's Christmas programs.
