SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

A local motorcycle club helped provide funds to help surviving family members of fallen firefighters and law enformcement officers on Sunday. 

The Shields of Honor Motorcycle Club presented the 200-Club of the Coastal Empire a $2,500 check in front of police headquarters. The Shield of Honor is comprised of criminal justice and law enforcement professionals, fire fighters, and veterans of all U.S. Armed Forces. Its membership is dedicated to supporting federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, local communities, and the armed forces.

"I think for the families it shows them, just because you lost somebody, does not mean you are on your own. There is somebody that will stand behind you and make sure your life as much as it can: goes on and relieves them of the burden of finances," said Hill Billy, President, Old South Chapter, Shields of Honor.

The Shields of Honor will be raffling off an AR-15 to help raise additional funds. The 200-Club's mission is to provide immediate financial assistance to the surviving spouse and children of local law enforcement officers and firefighters who lose their lives in the line-of-duty, while protecting their communities.
