KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. -- The Rip City Riders raised $500. Walmart matched $500. Together, $1,000 was spent on coats for children in need.

The Rip City Riders aren't just a motorcycle club. They're a charity organization with a goal to take care of the kids in the community.

"Everything we do, all of the events that we do throughout the year, all the money we raise goes to the community to help the kids in the community," said Vice President Mike Germolus.

Thursday night's haul was the group's third time going around the Klamath Falls Walmart just to help keep kids warm in the winter. They sifted through all of the coat aisles going as far as feeling the coats to make sure they would be warm enough.

"There's a lot of poverty here in Klamath. There are a lot of kids that can't afford coats. A lot of families really need coats," said the organization's treasurer Robbin Stults. "We know there's a need out there. We wanted to help out with that."

"You know that kids who otherwise might be cold this winter aren't going to be. They're going to have a nice, warm coat," added Germolus. "It's a good feeling to know that some kid isn't going to be freezing this winter because we were able to buy them a coat."
