The Undesirables began a few years ago as a group of friends with a shared interest in riding motorcycles. Over their existence, the group has helped out numerous people in the area. Recently the group raised $5,000.00 to help a Winchester resident struggling with cancer. The group has grown to 29 members. “We just like to help people out,” said Undesirables member Herb Meinerding.

On December 11, from Noon until 5:00 PM the group will hold its first of what is hoped to be an annual toy drive on Main Street on the Courthouse Square in Winchester. Those wanting to make a donation of new and slightly used unwrapped toys, or cash need only stop by and drop it off with one of the members. “My friend Angel Vore thought we should do something for the animals too, so we’re also accepting donations of dog and cat food to be donated to the animal shelter,” said Meinerding.

“I brought the idea to Mayor Bob McCoy and Shean Bosworth of the Winchester Street Department. They were on board with our idea and Shean helped me to get this organized,” said Meinerding. “Angel took a drop box out to Wick’s Pies, and the employees have made a very generous donation,” he added. “Susie Girton is going to help us out with the distribution of the toys,” he continued. “I’d like to thank the employees at Wick’s Pies, and all those who have helped us get this started,” said Meinerding.
