ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
An Albany area motorcycle club makes it their mission to ensure a good Christmas for children in need. The Remaining Few Motorcycle Club members roared through Albany today on their annual toy run.
Hundreds of bikers revved their engines to help bring Christmas to families in need.
"I think some of them wouldn't have anything, we make a lot of their Christmas because of us," says Dale Hathcock, Remaining Few Motorcycle Club.
It is the 29th year the Remaining Few Motorcycle Club has put on their Motorcycle Toy Run.
"This is what is beautiful about moments like this, there are people who came in and signed up with us, that we know for sure, that if it were not for events like this, they would wake up on Christmas morning and there would be nothing," says Kelly English, Salvation Army Albany Corps Officer.
They left the Five Points Harvey's parking lot in East Albany and escorted a truckload of toys through downtown Albany to K-Mart.
"When folks come together and pitch in and help out, it takes a lot of stress off of us," says English.
The truck full of goods goes to the Salvation Army to help with the Toys for Tots drive. And everything that is donated stays right her in Southwest Georgia.
"That is why we have always done the salvation army, because we know everything will go local, and we want to help the community and that is what we try to do," says Hathcock.
Which helps people like the Walker family who lost everything in a house fire last month.
"It was pretty traumatic but the thing about it is, we are all together and we were all safe and unharmed, and we saw how close it was that we got out," says Troy Walker.
They were given donations and a platter for Christmas dinner.
"The love and support that is shown to people in need, people have suffered tragedies like we have, it is just a tremendous help, it is overwhelming," says Walker.
And overwhelming for the children who will now have a very Merry Christmas.
In addition to boxes full of toys, club members collect canned goods and donations for the Salvation Army.
