1,000 Bikers Aid Salvation Army For Christmas Gifts

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - Rumbles of motorcycles could be heard valley wide today as 1,000 bikers help The Salvation Army deliver gifts to those in need.

They collected 3,000 gifts for their annual toy drive Saturday afternoon at Harley Davidson.

Bikers put together a motorcycle ride to help carry 3 toys each to Grand Mesa Middle School.

Families will be receiving these gifts soon --but it's not just for kids.

It will be also given to disabled adults and to seniors who will be alone during the holidays.

"My goal is a lot deeper than a child getting a toy. My goal is to make sure that children feel the warmth of the season and it I know it's very difficult for a child, who's not matured yet, to understand that. My goal is for a parent to not be stressed but having to provide for their family, but we can come along side them and make it a joyous season for them" said Captain Steve Stanert, Mesa County Commanding Officer Salvation Army.

2 trucks were filled with toys in under just one hour and it is estimated to benefit about 4,000 to 5,000 people.
