KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. -- One non-profit organization is going above and beyond to make sure kids are warm this winter. The Rip City Riders motorcycle group shopped around Walmart Tuesday and bought 100 coats of all sizes.

“There’s a lot of low income people in Klamath. The poverty rate is [higher] than a lot of other areas. We’re not that big. There’s a lot of people having trouble putting food on the table and they don’t have to worry about a coat if we can help out. That's one of our missions, to help kids here in the Klamath Basin [and] make sure they're warm this winter. It gets rather cold over here, below freezing a lot of times,” said the Treasurer of the Rip City Riders Robbin Stults.

Originally the riders planned on spending $1,000 on coats. Thanks to Walmart donating $500 and Lithia Ford donating $100, the group spent $1,600 total.
