OROVILLE, Calif. - On Saturday, about 100 motorcycles will ride around dropping off toys for kids.
For the first time ever, people will meet with their motorcycles at the Riverbend Park in Oroville at 11 a.m. Saturday morning to go and drop off toys.
Corps Officer for Salvation Army, Michael Domenguiz, said the goal is to have all bikers bring a toy and do a run through town.
"This is huge," said Domenguiz. "Just partnerships year-round or in general are key for us because we can’t do this all by ourselves. I mean toys are always in need for Christmas."
He hopes this will become an annual event and continue to grow over the next couple of years. Anyone who has a motorcycle and wants to join is welcome to come to the Riverbend Park Saturday. Staging begins at 11 a.m. and the parade starts at noon.
The Salvation Army is also accepting monetary donations. They can be dropped off at The Salvation Army Oroville, located at 1640 Washington Ave., Oroville, CA. You can also donate online to the Virtual Red Kettle at OrovilleRedKettle.org. All donations stay local and help those in need in and around the Oroville community.
