14th Annual Augusta Toy Run kicks off

Posted: Updated:
AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

The Southeast Paralyzed Veterans of America kicked off their motorcycles at the Augusta History Museum Sunday for Christmas house, a program that makes sure every family on Fort Gordon has Christmas each year.

Randall Espiritu, with the Roads Motorcycle Brotherhood said, "I have children and grandchildren and we want to support the people who need it."

300 riders just like him came out to help Christmas House. The program is working on giving 750 kids this holiday season toys and their families holiday meals.

Shawn Williams, Christmas House Program Manager said, "Some are giving toy donations and some are doing monetary donations."

Espiritu knows the donations will make Christmas brighter for a child who might not otherwise have one.

"They would be with less without us. We're doing this for them."
