Brother's Keeper motorcycle ministry hosting toy run to replace stolen toys

 November has just begun and presents are already sitting under the Christmas tree at Second Blessings Thrift Store.

"They're for kids for Christmas kids around here who don't have nothing so we thought we could give them something," Steven Coble, Volunteer, Second Blessings.

Every year Second Blessings collects toys to give to children in need during the Christmas season but just a month ago the store had no toys to give away.

Volunteers say they begin collecting toys at the beginning of the year, last month all of them were stolen.

"The people that come, they made three trips in the same night loaded the truck up, we got some of the toys back but not all of them," said Coble.

 Throughout the year the store reaches out to help families in need and contributes to local non-profit organizations. In their time of need Cycle Heaven and the Brother's Keeper Church Motorcycle Ministry offered their support and are hosting a toy run this weekend to help replace the lost toys.

"Our motorcycle ministry is really geared towards helping children not only at Christmas but throughout the year," said Scott Wilcox, Leader, BKC Motorcycle Ministry.

"It was a burden that the toys were stolen but it makes us feel better that people like cycle heaven can reach out and help us," said Cable.

Cycle Heaven owner Scott Wilcox says this is the first of many toy runs this holiday season. He hopes this first run will grab the community's attention and encourage people to give back.

"We're tough in the fact that we stand for what we believe and we believe Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior and we want to put that out into the community," said Wilcox.

Cars and motorcycles are welcome to meet at Brother's Keeper Church at 11a.m. on Saturday. The toy run to Second Blessings will start at noon.

Last month the Huntington Police Department arrested the three adults who were involved with stealing the toys.

The Brother's Keeper Motorcycle Ministry will have a second toy run in December, to benefit Buckner Family Place.
