Holiday Bikers: motorcycle clubs across the country help needy families this Thanksgiving

When it comes to bikers, you know we're all about camaraderie. We show the spirit of brother- and sisterhood all year long, and it’s not always exclusive to fellow riders. Just as local bikers came together to help out bullied kids in Nova Scotia and Waxahachie, Texas, and rider Shadetree Surgeon aspires to build a motorcycle community center, motorcycle clubs across the country are helping out this Thanksgiving. Here are four examples of rider readiness to lend a hand to those who need a little help this holiday.

Canned Food, Can Do
In Cordele, Georgia, three Motorcycle Clubs-- the Red Knights, The Remaining Few, and the One for All-- joined together to make sure area families were fed this holiday. The three groups collected 4,500 units of canned goods all throughout October to donate to Cordel multipurpose ministry, Hand of Hope Inc. On Sunday, they revved up and dropped off their collection, and the holiday help was then distributed by volunteers to people in need.

New Jersey HOG Delivers Turkeys
In Newton, New Jersey, 172 Thanksgiving turkeys were hand-delivered by members of the Northwest Jersey HOG (Harley Owners Group) Chapter 2906 motorcycle club. Since 2000, the North Jersey Turkey Drive has raised money each year to purchase as many holiday birds as possible, which are then personally delivered to needy families. This year around 120 families, some of them housebound, received delicious Thanksgiving turkeys for an amazing holiday feast.
