The Friends Of The Kids Board of Directors has made the hard decision to not hold the annual ride to Whiteriver this June 26th thru the 28th. The current state of affairs with the health concerns for the riders, the children, and the staff of the Shelter, and the cancellation of the White Mountain Bike Rally have led us to this decision.

We still have full intentions of providing the needed support we provide to the Shelter each year. The BoD will be taking those supplies to the home in October. We are also working with the staff to meet some immediate needs (i.e. disinfecting wipes and spray, and baby wipes). If you have an of these hard to find products and you would like to make a special donation, please reach out to any member of the Board, or email friendsofthekids@gmail.com.

We want to thank all of our faithful supporters for their generosity and continuing support. We hope to come back stronger and more enthusiastic next year.

Friends Of The Kids (FOTK) is a motorcycle rider oriented IRS 501(c)(3) charitable organization that has been assisting the White Mountain Apache Children’s Home in Whiteriver, AZ for many years with donations of school supplies, home essentials, foodstuffs, and gifts for in-need children. We found our purpose there when we discovered the reduced level of close, local, charitable resources to a community with such an important need.

Being primarily Phoenix area based, we love our opportunities to get out of the summer heat and visit the Northern Arizona mountains. So when we discovered we could do both of these things at the same time, it was a no brainer and FOTK was born! Over the years the size of the ridership has ebbed and surged as supporters have endured the various economic and and social changes of the times. Today we are stronger than ever with support from many Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.) chapters, Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Dealerships, and the mentoring of other non-profit organizations such as HOGZ United Charities. That, and the enduring and ongoing support of the individuals of both the riding and non-riding persuasion has been the key to our success year after year.
