RCB brightens children's lives

Dec 3, 2011 - This morning over 50 RCB members, laden with children's toys, swapped their monthly ride for a chance to bring a little sunshine to the residents of the Children's Receiving Home of Sacramento. CRH houses children removed from unsafe housing situations and today had about 60 residents.

After piling gifts (a pretty sizable pile!) into a side room, RCB volunteers fired up the hamburger/hot dog grill and served up over 150 meals to residents, staff and our own riders. The children, grateful for a meal that didn't consist of boring vegetables and mystery meat, were even more excited when they found out they could have two (!) cookies, or in at least one case, four (!) hot dogs! And the staff enjoyed a day when they were served instead of the other way around.

The security of the children prevented us from taking very many photos, but the ones we have are published in our photo gallery.

The staff was grateful and asked us to return again ... I sure hope they still feel that way when they realize we left them with 60 kids high on sugar!  ;-)
