Toys for Tots and Harley Davidson on a mission for donations

With the current state of the economy, Toys for Tots has more children to take care of this year. To help needy New Hanover County kids, Toys for Tots is teaming up with the Harley Davidson store in Wilmington. Motorcycles of all kinds will meet at the Harley store on Market Street this Sunday at noon for a special ride around town. Their mission is to encourage people to donate to the Toys for Tots program. "With the economy this year, it's absolutely essential that we not forget the most vulnerable who'd be the children of the parents who are in trouble financially," said John Dunn, Toys for Tots coordinator. You can donate toys at over 100 locations across New Hanover County, including here at the News Channel 3 studios. All the toys go to local children. One thousand bikes are expected to participate in the Toys for Tots ride Sunday, so expect delays across town from 12:00 p.m. till 2:00 p.m.

We just got home from this

We just got home from this ride. What a great turnout this year! Since we joined the biker community a few years ago we have enjoyed many benefit rides. Toys for Tots is one of our favorite benefit rides. It is such a rewarding feeling to know that we can do something to help those less fortunate then us! Thanks to all of the Wilmington Police Officers as well as The Sheriff's Department for doing such a wonderful job in making this a safe ride!! Also, thanks to all of the patient folks in automobiles that waited for all of us to have a great ride for a wonderful cause! It is truly heart warming to see all of the people gathered on the side of the road, in parking lots waving and cheering the ride on! We are so blessed!! We hope every child has a Merry Christmas!
