The Fresno chapter of the infamous motorcycle club Hells Angels stood in line for over five days leading up to Black Friday, so they could buy the entire stock of bikes at a discounted price and give them all to a charity that helps needy and homeless families.
For them, Black Friday was about bringing joy to people who couldn’t afford it, instead just getting a deal.
When all was said and done, 200 bikes were purchased and shipped to the Povarello House for homeless and needy families, a local charity that will distribute the bikes to needy children and families.
This is the 16th year that Hells Angels chapters across the country have been participating in toy drive efforts to help needy families enjoy the holidays.
As a rebel counter-culture, the Hells Angels and other biker groups have been the target of media slander and profiling for many decades. However, the many charitable efforts that groups like this are involved with shows that you should never judge a book by its cover, and that being a rebel isn’t always a bad thing.
