Biker group organizes food drive for homeless
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - Full Force Ryderz, a Tallahassee-based biking group, held their fifth annual food giveaway for the homeless on Saturday.
The group says they’ve spent months planning the event and getting together food, snacks and drinks to let the homeless community know someone has their back.
“Well some of us know what it is to be without when we were growing up so our main goal is if we can help at least one child we did something we know somebody else wasn’t able to do,” explained Full Force Ryderz President Spyce Davis. “We do a lot of fundraisers and we also put in our own hardworking money and we just make sure we do everything we can for the less fortunate and the homeless.”
They weren’t the only ones giving back. The Warriors Apostolic Ministry also had a food giveaway in front of the Kearney Center, as they say they were called to serve.
“We love to come here to make sure the people have. We want to feed them, love on them, care for them and give back to them so today we decided to come out and just see what God had in store,” said Apostle member Latania Brown.
It’s their past experiences and struggles that they say have fueled their willingness to give to those that are struggling now.
“We are here because we were once ourselves going through something so once God comes in to clean us up and make us better we’re able to go out and make somebody else better,” explained Brown.
When it comes to these groups coming together for one purpose, they both told WCTV that it’s just meant to be.
“We are on one accord. That we are moving in the kingdom and we’re moving in the right direction,” said Brown.
Spyce Davis told WCTV that the appreciation they receive always makes them know the work was worth it.
“It’s unexplainable. Sometimes it brings tears to your face. You have kids, we fed a lot of kids today and that was our main target and the homeless,” said Davis.
Both groups say they plan to continue to give back, with future events coming as soon as Christmas Eve.
