37th Anniversary Toys for Tots Motorcycle Ride

37th Anniversary Toys for Tots Motorcycle Ride

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO ~~~~~ September 19, 2020  (LSN)  Motorcycle enthusiasts ride this Saturday in the 37th Anniversary Toys for Tots Ride in support of The Salvation Army Christmas Toy Campaign.

Bikes sporting stuffed animals, trucks, dolls, and other toys will make their way across town to deliver their gifts. They will gather at Thunder Bay Harley-Davidson between 12:00 and 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 19, 2020.  The ride will leave at 1:00 p.m. with the bikers travelling through the city to Current River Park across from The Salvation Army on Cumberland St. arriving about 1:25 p.m. where they will present their gifts.  Financial donations are also accepted.  Anyone not able to participate in the ride can drop off donations at The Salvation Army on Cumberland St.

This year due to the pandemic, safety protocols will be in place for the event including physical distancing and wearing masks.

The toys will be distributed to children in Thunder Bay during this Christmas season through Salvation Army programs.   Despite the pandemic, families will turn to The Salvation Army for assistance in providing gifts for their children.  Our Christmas programs will be modified this year to keep everyone safe, but support will be available for anyone needing it. 

"Once again we see the giving nature of the biker community coming forward to help the children of Thunder Bay. For 37 years motorcyclist in our city have answered the call to help put a smile on the face of a child on Christmas day. The only thing that is louder than the roar of their motorcycles is the sound of charity that rings from their hearts," said Gary Ferguson, Executive Director, The Salvation Army Community & Residential Services.

Thunder Bay motorcycle clubs Harley Owners Group, Ontario Northwest Retreads, Superior Riders, Bikers for Christ, Widows Sons Masonic Riders Association, and Veterans UN/NATO Canada are hosting the event in partnership with The Salvation Army. 

The Salvation Army thanks all the bikers who participate in the event, members of clubs as well as the many independent riders who come out each year.  Their generous gifts make this event so successful year after year.
