ALBANY, GA (WALB) - In the spirit of giving this season one Albany Area motorcycle club is doing something special to help fulfill the wishes of children with disabilities.
Another Level Motorcycle Club has raised money to buy gifts for more than 80 young people, on Saturday they received those gifts from Santa Clause.
Just days before Christmas Santa is making appearances, he ditched the Reindeer and got on a motorcycle and rode to the Turner Field Gym.
Easter Seals and Another Level Motorcycle Club teamed to make this Christmas party a reality for children with disabilities.
"We've got with them to come up with a way to give back to their kids, so what better way than to bring Santa Claus to them, and give them the kind of gifts that they want," said Kris Morrill, Another Level MC President.
The Club raised about $4,000 to buy gifts, and also collect dozens of others.
Thanks to the efforts of the bikers 84 children received gifts they wanted for Christmas.
They each wished for three gifts every child got the gift hey wished for.
Children from Americus to Thomasville showed up for event, the party is something organizers say is a blessing given that these are the only gifts some may received this season.
"They're very excited especially this time of year some of the families they struggle to make ends meet, so they've very happy to see their child get the gift they actually wished for," said Rosalyn Horne, Easter Seals Southern Ga. Inc.
The Easter Seals say the efforts of the bike club is simply outstanding.
Easter Seals is a nonprofit dedicated to helping children and adults with disabilities attain greater independence.
They hope they'll be able to throw the party again next year.
