13th Annual Hells Angels Toy Run
Benefits Local Charitable Non-Profit

Photos by RJ Wilson and Rodney Cabrera

     'Tis the season for unconditional giving...whether it be giving back to your community or giving to those who otherwise would go without.  That was the scene on Saturday, December 3rd as, for the 13th year in a row, Hells Angels in Fresno unloaded hundreds of toys at the Poverello House.
     The Poverello House is a private, nonprofit, nondenominational organization that has been serving the hungry and homeless of California's San Joaquin Valley since 1973.  Last year, Poverello House gave away 3500 toys on Christmas morning.  The toys donated Saturday by the Hells Angels will be part of that special time.
     In addition to the toys donated, there were dozens of bikes of all sizes immediately given to those waiting by the toy filled Semi trailer for just that moment.  RJ Wilson and his friend Rodney Cabrera were there and caught some heartwarming photos.
