Georgia Riders Helping Foster Kids in Need
Did you know that most of the children that are taken from their homes to be put in the care of foster parents are taken at the spur of the moment? They have no time to pack their belongings or special items, such as clothes, soap, shampoo or even a toothbrush! These things, are usually provided by the foster parents. Once they have these items and have to get moved from home to home, most have no suitcase or bag to carry their things in. They often have to just be packed in a paper bag or trash bag.
With all of the above in mind, The Georgia Riders riding club decided to help the foster kids in their communities. They teamed up with The Future Hope Foundation, Inc. to be able to supply some of these essentials. The Future Hope Foundation, Inc. was created to assist organizations and families with children in the foster care system by obtaining support to meet their needs and raise public awareness of the difficulties they face.
The Foundation helps to make the transition from home to home a little bit easier on these children. It was brought to MC group’s attention that many children were in need of a duffel bag to carry their items. With that being said, they’ve been able, through generous donations from the public, to provide them with just that.
But that’s not all. The Georgia Riders decided to try to help make these kids’ birthdays a bit special by gifting them with a duffel bag with their name embroidered on filled with a few small birthday presents. On other occasions, the bikers were blessed to be able to provide some of the children with a bicycle to call their own. They also have an orphanage that they contribute to, to help with needs and gifts from the children’s own wish list and to fill the foster kids’ closets with much-needed personal hygiene items and clothing.
On June 5th, 2021, the Georgia Riders will be hosting their 1st Annual Charity Ride for The Future Hope Foundation, Inc. None of the above would be possible without the help of people like you who give so generously to the Future Hope Foundation, Inc. and other charities through personal donations or support of their fundraising events.
Please come out and support this worthy cause and enjoy the beauty of the mountains of Cleveland, Georgia. You’ll enjoy a scenic ride, lunch will be provided as well as event T-shirts, raffle items and live music by JB Wolf. Many thanks to all of the Georgia Riders sponsors and especially to Chuck Watwood with LawBike.com and Ron Galletti of Born To Ride Magazine, for your support of this fundraiser.
All donations are 100% tax deductible and receipts can be provided. The Foundation would like to give a special shout out to Matt Cantrell with Hiram Station located in Hiram, Georgia, for his exceptional support of past and future fundraising events.
