Motorcycle clubs from across East Tennessee came together Monday to provide a little holiday cheer to a Powell family who lost their father last week.
Thirty-six-year-old Rubin Coffey was laid to rest Sunday after dying in a car accident last Tuesday. Monday, the Iron Pigs Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club, along with several others, delivered money and toys to Coffey's wife and three sons.
The Iron Pigs is a local motorcycle club who likes to do at least one charitable act a year. They decided to take-up donations for Coffey's family after learning of his death last week.
One man says it's about finding a bright light in this dark time.
"Just give them some memories you know; they're gonna always remember this Christmas as the year they lost their dad, you know, but if we could give them just a little bit of something, you know this is also the year a bunch of people we didn't even know showed up to just-- lessen the blow, you know?" said Brian Taft, Powell resident.
The Iron Pigs aren't the only ones honoring Coffey. Volnation.com member, Doug Coffin, set up an online fundraising campaign to help honor Coffey who was a Vols fan. That campaign has raised more than $9,000.
