Motorcyclists from Pickens County ABATE and Freedom Biker Church brought baby items for Hope Women's Center, a pro-life crisis pregnancy center located in Easley. They are pictured above with items brought on Saturday, March 31, 2018. Many more items were brought earlier in the week. 




Members of Pickens County ABATE and Freedom Biker Church brought much needed donated baby items to Hope Women’s Center, a pro-life crisis pregnancy center located on Gentry Memorial Highway (Highway 8) in Easley, near the intersection at Breazeale Road. On Saturday morning, they brought items on their motorcycles, as they rode from the American Legion Hut in Liberty to Hope Women’s Center for the first annual Run for the Younguns. Earlier in the week, they had brought a truckload of items. On Saturday morning, Suzanne O’Dell and Liz Rampy, two members of Hope Women’s Center’s Board of Directors, rode with their fellow bikers. 
          
“We are Pickens County ABATE, which is a motorcycle rights club,” Chat Cuddy told The Christian View magazine. “We like to try to help the community in whatever capacity we can, and this is just one of the many avenues that we try to bring awareness to our group as well as to help people in Pickens County. One good part about this that makes me feel really good is a lot of these people are not even associated with ABATE. They just chose to come out and support us in trying to support a cause. So, that’s really cool.” 

“We’re just trying to help out the community,” Floyd Moore, of Pickens County ABATE, told The Christian View magazine. “Our Assistant Coordinator (Cuddy) came up with the idea.” Moore added that the motorcycle group, which meets at the American Legion Hut, will also hold a veterans support rally, and, every three months, the group cleans a two-mile stretch of Highway 11, among other ways the group tries to help the community.

Benny Nichols, who chairs the Board of Directors for Hope Women’s Center, thanked everyone who participated in the Run for the Younguns. “Thank every one of y’all,” he said. “We really appreciate what y’all did. It tells us that you support what we do here. Judy said she couldn’t do this, cause she’d cry, and I’m about to cry. We really appreciate this. God bless you. We’re just tickled to death that y’all support us this way.”

“And we’re going to put on our sign Monday morning a big thank you, so everybody around here will know exactly who you are and what you do,” said Hope Women’s Center Director Judy Pace.
