Martinsburg, WV: Rescue mission receives $5,000 donation

Sorry Souls MC WV

MARTINSBURG — Dressed in black and leather, an Eastern Panhandle motorcycle club is working to break down the stigma against bikers one good deed at a time and have gifted $5,000 to the Martinsburg Union Rescue Mission just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday.

According to Stone, a member of the Sorry Souls Motorcycle Club, said he first heard of the mission’s need when he picked up a newspaper one day and saw a story talking about the mission’s upcoming Thanksgiving dinner and the immense need they had for food, winter clothing and COVID-19 personal protective equipment.

“I didn’t have every thing growing up, I was born and raised by my grandparents in Hagerstown,” Stone said. “They did what they could for me and my siblings… but now I can’t stand to hear kids squall because it hurts me… I used to do things on my own for women’s shelters and kids… when I joined this club I brought it with me and everyone has had my back. We do what we can because people, especially with this pandemic, are going without and need help and that’s what we do so I knew we could help the mission.”
