Brothers in Christ Motorcycle Ministries Delivers to Families in Need

Posted: Updated:

Move over Blitzen and Dasher, Santa has a new ride - on a Harley. Sunday a group of ministers on motorcycles roared through central Virginia, delivering gifts to families in need.

They are the loudest Santas you may ever see or hear; that's because they travel on motorcycles to deliver gifts. The Harleys are decorated with antlers, and riding on them are leather-clad Santas, who deliver food and gift cards to low income families in Greene and Orange counties.

Before making their rounds, the Brothers in Christ Motorcycle Ministries loaded gifts into a truck that traveled with them.

One Santa, Dwayne Waters of Orange County, said, “We’ve got food boxes for all of the families, we've got toys.”

One by one members of the Christian nondenominational group visited designated homes to make their deliveries. They pray with each family and leave behind a bible. But, the bikers say the children can barely contain their excitement when they see presents under the tree.

Local businesses donated the toys and food. The ministers delivered gifts to about 20 families over the weekend.
