A Motorcycle Rally from Madison to Murfreesboro will raise funds for Feed America First and their mission to get food and supplies to North Carolina to Hurricane Florence victims.
Feed America First (FAF) is mobilizing community relief efforts to assist those in need. In December, FAF will send a tractor-trailer fully stocked with food and supplies to North Carolina-based victims of Hurricane Florence after the area is cleared by first responders.
“Feed America First and OneGenAway have committed to delivering a truckload of food and hope and love to victims in North Carolina later this year,” said FAF executive director Tom Henry. “We need help in filling that truck with food and securing the $10,000 in donations it will take to get us there and give the food away.”
To help raise the funds, a Motorcycle Rally from Madison to Murfreesboro is planned on Oct. 14, 2018.
Niki Townsend with Sloan’s Honda of Murfreesboro and Chubby’s Fallen Riders is graciously hosting a charity ride for our Hurricane Florence disaster relief efforts! We will meet at noon on Sunday October 14th, with kickstands going up at 1 p.m. Meeting location TBA, and the ride will end at our warehouse in Murfreesboro with a hamburger and hotdog grill-out. $15/bike, $5 passenger.

In Fall 2017 when Texas was hit by Hurricane Harvey and Florida by Hurricane Irma, FAF responded by partnering with several local businesses and organizations, including One Generation Away, World Outreach Church and Martina McBride’s Team Music Is Love. In doing so, over 8,000 families were impacted by five tractor-trailers full of supplies sent to the flood zones. FAF looks to do the same this fall in North Carolina.
