A nonprofit motorcycle club raises money for elderly members

Senior citizens from the Assyrian community living in Chicago have relied on a motorcycle club for care packages as well as friendly visits from someone who speaks their language. With health guidelines and coronavirus information constantly changing, the language barrier faced by many Assyrian elders makes them even more isolated during the pandemic. Organizations that would typically step in to provide assistance, meal preparation, and translation services have had to cut back their services leaving the motorcycle club, known as the Assyrian Knights, filling an urgent need.
