Thanks to the Prince Rupert Harley Riders Club, there will be something under the tree for everyone once again this Christmas.

On the evening of Oct. 28, the club presented Capt. Gary Shiels of the Prince Rupert Salvation Army with a cheque for $10,000, along with 272 toys for the annual Christmas Hamper program.

The program provides families and children with gifts to open on Christmas morning, along with food for Christmas dinner.

Shiels said he expects the program will help out approximately 800 families and 1,400 children this holiday season, which is about the same as last year.

Prince Rupert Harley Riders Club president Chris Rose said he was happy with how much the event raised during his first year as president.

“People came out with strong support for us, even though there was so many other events going on that day,” Rose said.

The 2014 Toy Run took place on Saturday, Oct. 4, with 55 motorcycles taking part in the poker run that afternoon, followed by the annual dance at the Fishermen’s Hall that Rose said was packed.

There are still 2014 Toy Run T-shirts available, which Rose said will be sold at the Rupert Square Mall at upcoming dates, or can be purchased by contacting him at 250-600-6033.
