We will be collecting cash donations, toys or non-perishable food.
Most folks know the story concerning our holiday collection, toy/food drive. If you don’t this is the story. The Reservoir Dogs Motorcycle Club has been collecting for charity since around 2003. Proceeds have gone to 3 charities, “Torrington Christmas Village”, “Friendly Hands Food Bank” and “St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital”. We have also donated to the Newtown Memorial Playground. Historically we collected in the intersection in front of the Torrington Police Station. The year before last we were told that we could no longer collect in any street and were threatened with arrest if we did. We were then given permission by one manager at Stop and Shop on East Main St. to collect on their property. The other manager was apparently unaware of this and called the police on us. Again, we were told to leave under threat of arrest. So, pretty much the authorities believe that only THEY have the right to collect for charity in the road. Because of this, our donations have dropped from around $1000 per charity (between $3000 and $4000 total) to a meager $250 per charity. We have seen police explorers and firemen collecting in intersections all over town, but we are denied this right. Last year we collected from our clubhouse and unfortunately we were not able to donate as much but we continue to try.
If you are interested in donating, but you can’t stop by, checks can be sent to:
