Members of the Dukes Car Club deliver toys to Fire Station 49 who will distribute to families in need in the La Mirada community.

La Mirada~The Duke’s Car Club of La Habra dropped off toys this past Saturday at La Mirada Fire Station 49 after the club’s successful Toy Drive that took place on November 19th in Brea.

The fire station, in cooperation with Duke’s, will facilitate the distribution of the toys to children in need within the La Mirada community.

Sponsors of the event included SoCal Auto Spa, Prime Motivation and PowerAll. EDCO Waste & Recycling Services provided the recyclable cardboard boxes used for trash at the event and Republic Waste & Recycling Services provided the recycle collectives.

Also, Duke’s has partnered with Pastor Jack Miranda and Living Faith Church of La Mirada to help a family in need.

Money was collected at the toy event that will be donated to help a local family in which a grandmother is now raising a family after a 3-year old and 5-year old lost their mother to a tragic automobile incident.

Miranda said via text the club is not stereotypical, “They are a wonderful asset to the community and can often be misunderstood as a bunch of lowriders.”

Last month, Duke’s also participated in the annual Foster Road Elementary Thanksgiving Feast and the Whittier Boys and Girls Club Thanksgiving Feast where over 500 adults and children were fed.

Duke’s has also appeared and contributed to the La Mirada Relay for Life the last two years.

The club’s mission statement reads: “To continually promote the concept and improve the image of low-riding through dedication, commitment and involvement within our organization and within our communities."
