If you heard a thunderous rumble in the Lowcountry on Sunday, I am sorry to report that it was not a sequel to Tremors.

Hundreds of motorcyclists spent Sept. 8 in Goodwill’s Fifth Annual Undy 500 charity ride to support the community’s veterans and homeless.

Riders started the 100 mile trek from the Palmetto Goodwill in North Charleston to Red’s Ice House in Mt. Pleasant, taking time to stop at local Goodwills on the way. Twelve thousand dollars and thousands of clothing items were donated to the annual Stand Down Against Homelessness event. Proceeds help provide food, medical screenings, and hygiene services for locals who are struggling.

Goodwill is continuously helping veterans through their Veterans Employment & Training Services Program that provides clothing and job search assistance to those in need. Already, the organization has helped 70 people gain employment in the Tri-County area.
