Chapter A & H helping Ronald McDonald house

Chapter A & H helping Ronald McDonald house

In November, Chapter A done their annual Ronald McDonald house supply run. They invited Chapter H to assist and be part of the action.

Chapter A & H shopping for supplies.

Once we finished shopping we carried the supplies straight to the Ronald McDonald house where they would be used and shared among the residents.

It was explained to us that each family has 30 days @ the home and once the 30 days are up they have to leave to make room for the next family. They can also be put back on rotation as often as need be.

We were able to take a tour of the facilities. Each room was set up like a motel room, there was a community wash room, with detergent and all other needs provided. Also, each family had their on kitchen area with a stove, refrigerator, cabinets and sink. Then their is a community refrigerator that would store goodies from local churches and community groups.

There was also a dinning room and living rooms for the families to use. There are no TV’s in the individual rooms so that the families are encouraged to spend time together.

It was a true eye opener to think about these families that need this support and how important Ronald McDonald is to families. It hit home thinking about how much we take for granite, when we have healthy kids.

We all look forward to next supply run, knowing we are lending a helping hand to those in need.

Thank you for all you do!

It was a huge turn out this year and we look forward to next year.

Chapter H & The Freak Show

Chapter H & The Freak Show

 

Chapter H was approached by a member about helping out with a Haunted House. They needed help in the parking lot with all the traffic in and out and parking cars.

This opportunity turned into a great partnership!

Not only did Chapter H help park cars, we brought so many helping hands to the events that we actually helped in the haunted house. We had so much fun scaring people, it was constant laughs.

The haunted house is located in Saboogla bottom in Calhoun Co in North Mississippi and is put on by a group called “The Freak Show”.  They started this haunted house as a fund raiser to help a family in need. This concept goes hand in hand with what we as Dream Riders do. Dream Riders helps with sick children from ages 0-18 and The Freak Show will help families that have needs outside the realm of sick kids.

We have formed a partnership with this group of awesome people and will continue from here on out in the month of October every Friday night to be there to help with parking, help with scaring, help with what ever they need us to do.

If you see our flyers out in October 2017, come out and see what it is all about. And if there is ever a need that we can pass on to The Freak Show, we will be glad to lend a helping hand in that department also!

Thank you for all you do!

Trike-A-Thon St. Jude Fundraiser

First Baptist Fund Raiser

Dream Riders Chapter H, had the pleasure once again to help with the fundraiser for Trike-A-Thon for St. Jude, and helped supervise all the fun.

The kids were having a blast riding circles around us adults, many of them pretending to be on motorcycles.

After the Trike-A-Thon the kids had a field day trip to the local pumpkin patch,  we escorted their bus and hung around and played games with them.

It’s always an amazing day to be a DREAM RIDER!!!

Kids Day in Okolona MS

Kids Day in Okolona MS was a great success!

Dream Riders Chapter H was ask to attend a Kids Day in Okolona MS, and show encouragement to the kids that attended.

It was the first event of this kind in Okolona and was a great success.

Many kids showed up, we had a lot of laughs with the kids and lots of fun letting them sit on our bikes and talking to us.

It is always great to see the sparkle in children’s eye when you show them you care and genuinely concerned for their well being.
