On Saturday, May 31st, bikers in the area came together to ride their bikes for the homeless.
The event, Give a Ride Home, was designed as a fun opportunity to raise awareness and support for homeless agencies in the area by having bikers come together to enjoy a ride through Franklin, Washington & Jefferson Counties.
There were five agencies represented and riders were able to give money to the agency of their choice. Give a Ride Home started at M&S Harley Davidson in Chambersburg and went to Harpers Ferry.
It was an absolutely beautiful day for a bike ride! We are so thankful for being asked to participate in this event. Not only were we able to raise some support for The Hope Center but we also were able to raise awareness of our ministry to people who had no idea what we do and this event also gave us a chance to talk and get to know other agencies in the area who help the less fortunate as well.
If you weren’t able to attend this ride for the homeless, don’t worry, it’s happening again. We’ve been told that sometime in the fall they will host this fundraiser again. Once we have details we’ll be sure to pass it along to you so you can get the word out to all your biker friends. This is a great way to bring the biker community together and help make a difference for agencies who help those in need.
