Motorcycle gangs can get a bad rep, but The Hells Angels have done some truly great things over the years for those in need. They’ve repeated their good deeds yet again with their latest endeavor
A sector of the organization’s Fresno County, California teamed up to purchase all of the bikes sold at Wal-Mart during Black Friday for their annual Hells Angels’ toy run. This was the 16th year of the annual event that donates proceeds to the homeless children and families of Fresno-based Poverello House.
Purchasing nearly 200 bikes toward the end was not the only impressive feat. According to sources, some Hells Angels members waited five days outside of Wal-Mart to get the bikes, as well as other toys, for the kids this year.
One member, Merl Hefferman, told ABC 7 News that “It’s not a jacket, it’s not a glove, it’s a bicycle… You ain’t got enough money in this station that makes me feel the way I feel when I give these kids these bikes.”
The Children were presented toys and bikes on the following Saturday, and the remarkable photos speak for themselves. The bikes reflect the love the members of the organization have for their own motorcycles and giving to children in need while sharing their own passion truly highlights how dedicated these members have toward working toward a better community.
The motorcycle gang stereotype, with leather outfits and bad attitudes, have quickly been shattered by their generosity towards their neighborhood. We hope everyone can work towards helping strangers the way these members have for these kids!
