    Friends of Eldridge Children's Home FaceBook page: https://www.facebook.com/echbenefit?fref=ts
    Donations via paypal or checks (Payable to Eldridge Children's Home) link on the web page. http://www.eldridgetoyrun.com/

    We do have the Ron Melton Scholarship, beginning last year, we will take 5% of net and add to the Scholarship and do so until the Scholarship Fund reaches a cap total we have set. This is in part to have enough in reserve to meet Scholarship needs and each year we have donations designated for the Scholarship that may not get earmarked unless it is marked or noted on the donation.
    More information as I have it.... as always we are grateful for your support to the home and it's mission for the children.
    I will try to start a Facebook page in coming days, just for riders and for those that don’t read this forum.
    *** ONE change this year….we are asking to omit using gift cards from retail stores due to issues that may not give proper credit to the Home and you the giver.
    Checks are accepted.

    Hey everyone...this event is coming up this weekend! The weather looks really good (for December) and I hope you are making plans to ride up and support the kids. As usual there will be rides coming in from all points on the compass. There are a few of us Bham riders that are planing to depart from the at J & J Grocery at 7:45 sharp https://www.google.com/maps/place/J+...!4d-86.9817444
    in Bessemer on Saturday morning if you want to ride along. Thanks to Martin Benson for putting this together and I know he will have a great ride laid out for us to get there. If you can't make the ride from Bessemer and want to meet there at the home that will be fine too! The point is that this is a great time to ride and support this great home and its mission for these kids. Post here if you are going or have any questions. Let's see if we can fill that fish bowl with money!

    Ride safe and we'll see you there!
