ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) – It’s the season of giving. Thanks to two biker groups in Albany, 14 Southwest Georgia families will have Thanksgiving meals on their tables this year.
Xtreme Ryderz collected enough food to give six families a Thanksgiving meal. Marvin Thomas and his motorcycle club Viper Unit added another eight to that total.
Both groups drove door to door in Sunday’s cold weather to deliver the food to families in need. The meals included the holiday staples of turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, yams and beans.
“Xtreme Ryderz, this is what we do. We get out, we get on our bikes, we ride and see what’s needed in the community,” Latosha Brown, treasurer of Xtreme Ryderz Motorcycle Club, said. “We wouldn’t let cold weather stop us because we know that there’s still families out there that are in need and need to be served.”
