CLIENTS GET DELIVERIES FROM MOTORCYCLE CLUB AND ROLLER DERBY GIRLS
Bethlehem, PA 4/11/2019 – Meals on Wheels of the Greater Lehigh Valley recruits special delivery volunteers year round and recently had some special guests.
Motorcycles pulled out from the Meals on Wheels parking lot as the Nam Knights Motorcycle Club left to deliver meals. The line of motorcycles was led by “Sarge”, President of the Nam Knights Chapter of the Lehigh Valley. Nam Knight’s mission is to honor the memory of American Veterans and Police Officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty, to assist Veterans and Police Officers in their time of need and to promote community awareness through sponsorship and participation in various fundraising events. As part of their charity work, Meals on Wheels connects them with clients who have served.
The Lehigh Valley Roller Derby Girls delivered meals to Moravian House in Bethlehem, skating through the hallways to deliver the meals. Created for the skaters by the skaters, the Lehigh Valley Rollergirls are dedicated to providing an opportunity for women athletes to achieve their maximum potential, both athletically and intellectually through the sport of roller derby.
