THE Sikh Motorcycle Club Canada is a group of passionate riders who say that while enjoying the perks of riding, they love to volunteer for community needs.
“We would like to express our sympathy with the Canadian brothers and sisters, who suffered a significant loss financially and emotionally due to the recent flooding. We know many generous fellow Canadians offered unconditional help with food and shelter,” they say in a statement.
“We as a group also would like to help people who financially couldn’t afford to make their properties liveable again. Our members arranged excavating equipment and dump trucks and are supporting the flood victims to clean their properties, specially where creeks and flood waters left silt, mud, debris. Anyone who needs materials to regain access to their properties, we along with the help of our Ontario chapter Sikh Motorcycle Club of Ontario and Gurdwara Sahib Sukh Sagar New West, provide the services free of cost. We just want to help out,” they add.
They started this service back on December 4 and will continue to help on every weekend until the affected people have settled down at their properties. They have already worked on properties in Yarrow, Columbia Valley and Harrison Hot Springs. They have also helped five families in Princeton.
“If you or anyone you know needs a hand, feel free to call or send us a message and we will set up a date and time to come help you out. Please help us share this message with the victims,” they say.
