Bikers ride to feed the less fortunate

RAPID CITY S.D (KOTA TV) - A group that sometimes carries a social stigma works to make a change.

Dustin Larvie, member of the Raiders Motorcycle Club, said he makes it his mission to distance his crew from the negative stigma attached to bikers, by offering services to the community.

"We're out there riding around checking to see if there's anybody hanging out in places, letting them know to come here and get some food,” said Larvie.

The Raiders and ‘Friends For a Cause’ set up shop at the Cornerstone Rescue Mission to provide meals for those who are less fortunate.

“We've made a lot of bad decisions in life and we got to the point where we wanted to give back,” said Friends for a Cause Co-Founder, Kene Roberts. “To things right and do things to help others."

Volunteers young and old helped to serve a filling meal.

"I bring all these kids in to try to teach the next generation to do the same,” said Larvie

‘Friends for a Cause’ said for them, it’s personal.

"In this day and age there's so many distractions we tend to forget about those less fortunate in society,” said Roberts. “It feels great to take time to give back and let them know, hey we're here for you and we're going to do whatever we can to help them out.”

The group plans to have a coat drive. You can visit their Facebook page to find out where and when it will be held.
