Riding through the chilly winter fog, United Bikers of Northern California “F Troop” delivered Christmas toys to more than one hundred children in low income housing in the Intermountain Area on Saturday morning December 15.
The bikers met at Greg Trotter’s house at 9:30 a.m. to pack vehicles with toys for boys and girls. F Troop raised funds to purchase toys at their giant annual yard sale during the summer. Additional toys were gathered by the “Stuff the Ambulance” program sponsored by Mayers Memorial Hospital.
The club delivered toys to apartments on Superior Avenue and Burney Villa in Burney, Rainbow’s End Trailer Park in Johnson Park, Cedarwood apartments in Fall River Mills, Mayer’s Memorial Hospital, and McArthur Trailer Park.
At each stop, children and their parents streamed out of their homes to greet Santa and receive presents.
F Troop is the local affiliate of United Bikers of Northern California a non-profit tax exempt charitable organization dedicated to the freedom and safety of all motorcyclists. Part of F Troop’s motto is “riding to live and living to give.”
