“We’re a new breed of biker,” Dewhurst said.
New Breed’s Santa’s Cause for Christmas will be the club’s chief fundraiser for the entire year of 2014. Maple stated that, while this year’s Santa’s Cause may be relatively small, next year, they plan to go all out and hold nothing back.
“All Decatur County has Cheer Fund, and the need is greater than that,” Dewhurst said. “We just want to help out.”
This year, the families selected to receive gifts were mostly through word of mouth, but Maple said they will have a formal application next year. Guidelines for approval have not been established yet, but they will be publicized next year when applications are available.
“We’re real sincere about helping Decatur County with our toy drive and taking some of the weight off Cheer Fund,” Maple said. “Stay tuned for 2014.”
Among the activities planned for next year’s fundraising are numerous motorcycle rides, concerts, raffles and a variety of charity events. New Breed’s founder and vice president said there will be plenty of opportunities to donate and help the kids of Decatur County. They said other clubs have also reached out to New Breed, wanting to get involved with Santa’s Cause for Christmas.
Now that the leg work is out of the way and New Breed will shortly be classified as a not-for-profit entity, all that remains is to collect donations and make big plans for the holiday season of 2014.
