Channel 4 news on our Food Drive last Saturday
Last Saturday the motorcycle community came together on a Food Drive to collect donations for the The Rio Rancho Storehouse West. The typically received thousands of pounds of food from the yearly Rio Rancho Toy Run. They were low in supplies for the needy due largely in part because, The Rio Rancho Toy Run had to be cancelled in 2012 because of the high cost of police escort for the run of $5000.00.
Below is a thank you letter from the Store House. We we able to collect 1204 pounds of food. The New Mexico Motorcyclist Rights Organization donated $200.00, the Central New Mexico Motorcyclist Right Organization donated $100.00, the Confederation of Clubs donated $200.00 and Peacz who was the coordinator of the Rio Rancho Toy Run had mailed them a check for $500.00 for a total of $1000.00. Thank you to all, we displayed the kindness, compassion, and loyalty that our motorcycle family does when they unite to support our community even in times when may of us are struggling to make ends meet. Thank you to all for helping us make this event a success.

Please accept my thanks and that of the Board of Directors of Storehouse West for that fantastic donation of 1204 pounds of non-perishable food you collected during your food drive.
This has been a very busy and demanding holiday season, beginning early in November and continuing throughout December. The numbers of persons coming for food have increased. We have been feeding and clothing more and more families. With your donation we will continue to do so.
We appreciate your support and wish you a peaceful and happy New Year.
