NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - East Texas bike enthusiast reved up their engines and rallied together for a good cause this morning.

The Texas Thunder Harley Owner's Group, also known as H.O.G. hosted their 8th Annual Toy Run in Nacogdoches. Five dollar donations and new toys were collected to benefit the East Texas Women's Shelter and the Nacogdoches Senior Center. Pam Hill, a H.O.G. Spoksperson says the organization is proud to be a part of this event that benefits the community.

"Our members encompass a 9 county area which so does the East Texas Women's Shelter, so they were really excited about giving to this cause because it does cover their area as well" syas Hill.

The H.O.G. Chapter has donated just shy of 60 thousand dollars to charities since the group started in 2000. And if you missed this morning's toy run, it's not too late for you to contribute. Just contact the Texas Thunder Harley Davidson Dealership in Nacogdoches.
