Outcast MC helping others over Thanksgiving

(video) --- A local motorcycle club reaching out to help others over the Thanksgiving holiday.

The Lima Outcast MC holding a Thanksgiving feast for the community.  Along with the meal the club members also gave away food and clothing to people who are less fortunate.  The idea came from one of the club members who was in Columbus a few weeks ago and saw a homeless family on the street.  So the club decided they could help families in the same situation back here in Lima.
