Fellowship Riders bring Christmas to the children of incarcerated parents

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Christmas came early for thousands of Lubbock kids this year.

One group in particular brought presents and smiles to the children of incarcerated parents.

Fellowship Riders Lubbock is a faith-based, non-profit motorcycle group here in town. They partnered with Bikers Against Child Abuse (B.A.C.A.) for their 11th annual gift delivery.

"We work with families and individuals who are incarcerated that have children that they want to give gifts to. We help facilitate that so that the incarcerated parent can give their children a gift," said Steve Lehmann.

They gathered at Redbud Baptist Church bright and early Saturday morning. Braving the cold winter weather, these bikers went kickstand up around 9 a.m. They opened the event up to anyone with a motorcycle to ride with them and make their deliveries this year.

Lehmann said a total of 75 bikers came out to help. Then they hit the Lubbock streets and split up into nine different routes. At the end of the day, they handed out more than 300 Christmas presents.

"We have stories that we can tell you that will bring tears to your eyes. But when we see the smiles and the love that these kids have for each other, their caretaker, their family, it's really almost indescribable," Lehmann said.
