LANCASTER – After more than 30 years of providing assistance to local non-profit organizations and families in need, a local car club has made the difficult decision to disband.
The River Valley Rods and Customs Club, based in Lancaster, was founded in 1988, with the purpose of raising money for causes in the area, while also allowing its members to show off classic vehicles. While they were drawn together by their love of cars, the group focused on helping those in need.
However, as the coronavirus pandemic cancelled many other headline events, it became clear the club wouldn’t be able to hold its events as usual, which meant raising funds would be a struggle this year.
As a final act of generosity, the group gave the balance of its funds to two local organizations, the FAIRHOPE Hospice and Palliative Care, Inc. and the Fairfield Center for disAbilities and Cerebral Palsy.
