BRIDGEPORT - A group of motorcycle riders has made Thanksgiving possible for many families in Bridgeport.

The True Riders Motorcycle Club has been taking donations for the past month in an effort to fill grocery bags with all the essentials for a Thanksgiving Day meal.

Organizers say they hope the example they set will spread as easily as the holiday cheer that inspired the event.

“It's a good feeling because I've needed help and I can give back to the community,” said one club member.
