Bike membership raises cash for college kids at native colleges

WHITESBURG, Ky. (WYMT) – Some students at two schools in Eastern Kentucky can do a little more thanks to a donation from a local organization.

The Seventh Sons Motorcycle Club recently raised $ 1,700 for students in the autism classrooms at West Whitesburg Elementary and Whitesburg Middle School. Officials from the club handed the money over to the school on Tuesday.

James Pratt, the organization’s president, tells WYMT he wants everyone to know that the club is proud of the schools when working with the students and everyone involved in the learning process. He says the group was always about helping children.

School principals say the money will be used to buy necessary items for the classrooms and future trips for students.
