Southern Cruisers Riding Club

Shaun Brown, member of the Southern Cruisers Riding Club, had an idea to bring toys to the sick and less fortunate children this Christmas. His dreams came true with the help of the SCRC Three Rivers Chapter 563 and the citizens of Muskogee.

The SCRC would like to send a special thanks to Orshelns, KMart, Walmart, Hornback’s Restaurants and Jimmy’s Egg for their participation.

A collection of more than 500 toys will be distributed to the children at St. Frances Children’s Hospital and the Muskogee Gospel Rescue Mission this Christmas.

The first Toy Drive was a success and the SCRC is looking forward to bringing the joy of Christmas to even more children in the years to come by making it an annual event.
