Prince Rupert Harley Riders present $10,000 and 252 toys to Salvation Army

The Harley Rider’s Group presented the Salvation Army over 250 toys and a cheque for $10,000 raised during the 2011 Toy Run.

The Harley Rider’s Group presented Captain Gary Sheils of the Salvation Army over 250 toys and a cheque for $10,000 raised during the 2011 Toy Run.

“Every year you refresh this old heart and get me ready to do what needs to be done for the kids this holiday season, and it really is all for the kids,” said a very happy Cpt. Sheils, adding that there is still a great need in the community.

“It’s going to be another busy year. I forecast we’ll be serving 950 families this year and I expect we’ll help around 1,200 kids, so what these guys do is absolutely huge.”

Organizers of the Toy Run are hoping to make next year’s the biggest yet and are looking into raffling off a Harley Davidson to raise even more money for the Salvation Army.

Captain Sheils is now turning his focus to the kettle campaign.

“I’ve got the Christmas letters done and printed, and I hope to have them out this month or early next month. Kettle workers are needed, since kettles are starting on November 27, and anyone interested can contact Herb Pond who is organizing the volunteers,” he said.

“I’m just so grateful to the people who give year after year and step up just like these guys. And that’s not just for us, but for other charities and groups in town.”
