Motorcycle club delivers gifts
ARDMORE, Okla. (KXII) -- On Dasher, On Dancer, On Prancer, and Vixen. On Comet, On Cupid, On Donner and Blixen. Santa delivered presents not in a sleigh, but on a Harley.
"We got one of our brothers that dresses up like Santa and we go out in through the community to their house and deliver the presents to them. He's got a big red bag that he sticks the presents in and he carries the bag up to the house," says Forsaken Few Motorcycle Club member Schultz.
"[The kids] wanted pictures, wanted to sit on his lap and wanted to hold him, you know, it's fun," says Forsaken Few Motorcycle Club member Stitch.
The Forsaken Few Motorcycle Club has been delivering gifts for underprivileged children for over 30 years and this year they delivered gifts to 60 children across Southern Oklahoma, three days before Christmas.
F.F.M.C. says families sign up online or at their club house asking for help.
"Different people throughout the community came up with the money and toys and stuff for us to provide for the families who couldn't do it themselves. It may have only been one present but at least they had something to open on Christmas," says Schultz.
Schultz and Stitch say it was worth it seeing the surprised looks on the children's faces.
"A few of those were a little stand off-ish because of the loud motorcycles coming in but after Santa Claus got out there it kind of, just soothed them over" says Stitch.
"We're not like the t.v. motorcycle clubs. We like to ride our motorcycle but we give to the community, we try to help out all we can," says Schultz.
F.F.M.C. say they plan to deliver gifts to children next year.
“We definitely want to thank you, all of our sponsors that helped us this year. It’s been one of our best years so far,” says Schultz.
The motorcycle club say they want to help make Christmas special for the veterans center and the senior center next year in Ardmore.
