VFW Motorcyclist Toys for Tots

Riding with Santa: On an extremely windy Saturday morning, military veteran motorcyclists from around the community gathered at Ingleside’s VFW Post 6386 on December 11th. They came together for a short fellowship before they went on their annual heartfelt toy drop off to Beeville. The bikers have been traveling to local children’s homes in Beeville for the past 15 years with Santa Claus and toys to give. “Some of these kids have been there their whole life. We’ve watched them grow up. We’ve grown a relationship with these children and they look forward to seeing us every year,“ explained a spokesperson for the female motorcycle group, The Divas.
