South Georgia motorcycle club donates to Open Arms

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  A South Georgia motorcycle club makes a large donation to help shelter young people.

 Wednesday afternoon One For All Brotherhood President Kevin Haase presented a check for $6800 to Open Arms officials.  

 The club raised the money during a poker ride on June 28th.

 Members were excited to help the Bridge,a shelter for abused, runaway, and homeless youth.

Haase said "What Open Arms stands for, it was hard to pick another charity that probably meant more to us."


The Bridge Program Director Reggie Boone said "It's just like a home, and the same things they would get at home, they get it at our shelter.  And donations are really needed."

     One For All brotherhood members say they plan to make their poker run to benefit Open Arms an annual event.
