Members of the Street Savage Motorcycle Club will tell you their club is not just about riding motorcycles. The club has served the Kansas City community since its founding in 2007. Giving back is their main mission.
Street Savage is hosting their seventh annual coat drive Dec. 11, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Street Savage will provide more than 200 free coats to the community through Project Warmth, coordinated by the Salvation Army.
“We love to give back to the community and be visible here,” said Mo Williams, Street Savage president.
Williams is one of the last original members of the club. Currently, the club has more than 20 official members.
Since its creation, the club has hosted meals for the community, trash pickup events and provided escort services for funerals. The Street Savage Motorcycle Club also performs random acts of kindness for families and individuals, providing them with food, prizes or anything they may need. All of their giving is funded by donations and member dues.
A huge part of the Street Savage Motorcycle Club is the close brotherhood, but the club has recently started accepting women.
“The guys here at Street Savage, they are men of integrity and they are very concerned about their community,” said associate of the club Carol Green. “It’s more than just the motorcycles.”
“When I first got into the club, we took a ride to Columbia and I only knew a few of the members, but they treated me like family and that’s what I knew I wanted to be a part of,” said member Charles Biggers.
Members go on regular motorcycle rides and travel across the country to participate in rides with other motorcycle clubs. If you’re interested in becoming a member, Williams suggests coming to Street Savage events and meeting the members.
