Bad Pennies deliver Thanksgiving meals to 14 local families
Partnering with United Way, Bad Pennies, the South Heart motorcycle organization, delivered Thanksgiving dinners to 14 families in Dickinson Wednesday evening to help spread holiday cheer.
Thanksgiving is all about being thankful for what you have and if possible, giving back to those in need. The Bad Pennies R.C., a motorcycle group based in South Heart, decided to get together and hand deliver Thanksgiving meals to 14 families.
Partnering up with United Way, the Bad Pennies picked up groceries earlier in the week from Cash Wise Foods and then the group gathered together Wednesday evening to deliver the boxes of meals on the back of gnarly wheels.
“It went really well,” Bad Pennies Treasurer Storjohann said. “... It makes you feel good. That’s what Thanksgiving is all about and being thankful for everything you have and being thankful to be able to help somebody else out.”
The people and businesses that made the meal deliveries possible were Ion Field Services, Tooz Construction, Cash Wise Foods, Dave and Kim Martin, Hanson Enterprises, Clint Riddel and Jeffrey Kuntz. The Bad Pennies would also like to express their gratitude to all of those who helped out and provided for families so that they could have a festive meal on Thanksgiving. This year has been such a setback for many families in the Dickinson area, and it was important to give something wholesome to those who are truly in need, Storjohann said.
“It makes your heart feel good. You might not think so but if you help somebody out that needs a helping hand, I guarantee it it makes your heart feel good,” he added.
The Bad Pennies will also be handing out presents to children around Christmas. If any business or person is interested in donating a present to a child, contact Storjohann at 701-290-9388.
