The American Legion Riders, Post 89, Texas City, hosted
a Toy Run to the Ronald McDonald House in Galveston
which took place on Saturday, December 9, 2017. The run
originated from Diamond Jim’s Saloon in Texas City. The
ride had participation from other caring motorcycle clubs,
namely, the Voyagers in Santa Fe and League City, the
V-Twins, the Riders Republic and the Damaged Souls. In
addition and knowing it’s a challenge to keep a long string
of motorcycles together while navigating through traffic,
the Texas City Police Department, the Galveston Police
Department and the Galveston County Sheriffs Office escorted
the run and did an outstanding job keeping all the
riders safe.
Over 50 motorcycle riders delivered hundreds of toys to
the patients at the Ronald McDonald House. All the riders
stood in line side-by-side in a bucket brigade formation to
deliver the toys from the trailer to the facility.
Jim Rabon, American Legion Rider, who spear-headed
the event, stated that it just hits your heart hard to see
the kids who are going through a really tough time in their
lives. But it so gratifying to see a smile on their faces
when they receive the toys. We hope that we let them
know that they are special.
The Ronald McDonald House provides a much needed
Home Away From Home for parents to be close to their
child who are going through medical treatment. It is a
place filled with Hope. Hope that each family will see a
better tomorrow. Hope that today’s treatment will make
a difference, and Hope that each child will live and thrive
and grow to be a happy and productive adult. The staff
at the Ronald McDonald House are incredibly dedicated.
They provide compassionate hospitality and lift the spirits
and brighten the days of the families there.
A special thanks goes out to Rich Huntley, Owner of
Best Shirts 4 U, who created the lettering of the business
names which was placed on the side of trailer used to
deliver the toys. And a Big Big Thank You goes out to all
those listed below who allowed us to place toy collection
boxes in their establishment.
