This evening, the Guardians of the Children will be holding a Dough Raiser at the Pizza Inn in Big Spring, located at 700 E. FM 700, from 5-9 PM. Guardians of the Children is a non-profit motorcycle organization that helps abused and neglected kids.
According to Greg McAlister, President of the GOC Wildcat Chapter, explained that the organization works alongside of Child Protective Services (CPS), Police Department, and Court-Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), and GOC get cases for abused or neglected kids.
“Every motorcycle organization or club has their thing called ‘cuts.’ It’s the leather vest that has their insignia on the back and everything. We give the kids, when we bring them into our family, a cut,” says McAlister. “Then we go to court with them, we throw birthday parties, we throw Easter [parties], Christmas parties, the whole nine yards.”
McAlister also noted that each child has 2 to 4 representatives that work with the child, “If the kid ever feels scared at any time,… they can call those reps up and we will protect them and see whatever they need.”
Everyone is encouraged to enjoy great food at Pizza Inn while supporting a great cause. The Guardians of the Children will be receiving 10% of the proceeds and all tips collected to help fund their activities that they organize for the kids.
