The guys at Unchained MC are at it again.
This is the second year that the group has made sure that the kids of Carter County don’t go without Christmas.
The group has rounded up toys, which were distributed to three different fire departments — Hampton, Stoney Creek, and Central.
The group also gave each department $500 to buy more toys.
In addition to donations to the fire departments, the group gave the Isaiah 117 House in Elizabethton a $1,000 donation along with toys, clothes, and shoes for the kids who use the house.
Much of the money was raised through the toy drive at Food City in Elizabethton.
A spokesperson for the group said, “We are just a bunch of Harley guys that love to ride motorcycles and a lot of people have a bad opinion of the MC world, but we are just a big family and love to help our community.
“We just hope that this will make Christmas a lot better for a bunch of families in our county. We want to thank everyone that came out to support our toy drive and hopefully next year it will be bigger than this year.”
Members of the Unchained Motorcycle Club visited three local volunteer fire departments in the county to distribute Christmas gifts to children in the community along with a $500 check to buy additional toys. The group is pictured as they visited the Stoney Creek Volunteer Fire Dept.
