The Tyler Longriders are known for their involvement in community charities, mainly concerning children, such as Toy for Tots.

But this past December, the club decided to hold an auction to help those who saved their clubhouse this past summer.
The three departments that were benifitting from this fundraiser was Chapel Hill, Jackson Heights, and East Arp.

The clubhouse was one of the many structures that had been threatened by wildfires, but due the help of men like Captain Russell Young,  their building was saved.

The club told FOX 51 that they raised just over five thousand dollars, donating almost seventeen hundred dollars to each of the three fire departments.
