Nubian Kruzers get into the holiday spirit

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Members of the Nubian Kruzers motorcycle club are determined to help every kid in Baton Rouge get a Christmas gift this year.

Even with rain pouring down Sunday morning, they headed out on their bikes to a neighborhood near Florida Boulevard, handing out donated toys, food, and drinks to less fortunate families.

"It's priceless, because a lot of these kids, this is all they're gonna get for Christma," said president Larry Myers. "And to know that we was a part of it, it just gives our heart joy."

Two of those children were five and eight year old girls led by their friend Darryl Edwards.

The 17-year old Edwards goes to church with the girls and their family, and thought it would be nice to make sure they got a nice present this year.

"We had just finished coming from church and we saw that they were handing out toys to the children," Edwards said. "It shows them that there are people who actually care about them, you know."

The Nubian Kruzers Baton Rouge chapter has been around for 14 years now. A non-profit organization, Myers says their mission is to give back while enjoying their favorite vehicles.

"We have the opportunity, we blessed to give back," Myers said. "And it just gives our heart joy to give back."

The toys were donated by a number organizations, including Blue Cross Blue Shield, Toys for Tots, and multiple individuals.
