Motorcycle Club Five plans to focus upcoming charitable efforts on helping disadvantaged young men.
With several community charity projects under its belt, MCV (Motorcycle Club Five) has announced a new effort to help a Living Classrooms program that supports disadvantaged young men. The Reisterstown- and Owings Mills-based motorcycle club launched its charitable arms, MCVcares in June 2011, and has since raised money for Hannah More School, participated in Ride Across America, sent care packages to troops in Afghanistan and even revved their engines at a counter-protest of the Westboro Baptist Church. The group’s latest initiative will raise money for the Living Classrooms’ Fresh Start program, which provides a 10-month job training program for men ages 16-19 who are out of school and out of work. Most of the students come from the …

MCV, a Reisterstown-based motorcycle club, presented Hannah More with a $5,000 check for interactive white boards.
A Reisterstown motorcycle rode into Hannah More School’s gymnasium on bikes to present the school with a generous gift just in time for the holiday. MCV (Motorcycle Club Five) presented the school with a $5,000 check for Mimeo Boards—interactive white boards—on Friday, Dec. 21. While the club originally intended to raise enough money for five boards and the necessary equipment to use them, the donation will cover six boards with money to spare. “It was very cool to ride our bikes right into the filled school gymnasium, where students who had gathered for their holiday assembly were completely surprised by our noisy arrival and thrilled we presented the school with an oversized check for $5,000,” the club’s Facebook page said. In April, the…

Motorcycle Club Five’s inaugural MCVcares for Kids campaign benefits the Hannah More School in Reisterstown.
MCV does a lot more than ride bikes. Motorcycle Club Five members can often be spotted at Full Moon Pub & Grill wearing their leather vests adorned with “V” patches, but again, these local residents do more than ride and hang out. The Owings Mills/Reisterstown-based club’s charitable arm, MCVcares, was started in June 2011 when they rode in Ride Across America. In the winter, the club raised more than $5,000 to send care packages to troops in Afghanistan. Members even revved their engines at a counter-protest for the Westboro Baptist Church in Glen Burnie last month. The Kansas church, known for its extreme position against homosexuality, was protesting outside of Glen Burnie High School. This month, the club has launched its first “…

The motorcycle club, with members from Owings Mills and Reisterstown, rode to Glen Burnie Tuesday afternoon, when members of the Westboro Baptist Church were protesting outside of Glen Burnie High School.
More than 200 people gathered Tuesday afternoon at the intersection of Baltimore Annapolis Boulevard and Kuethe Road to send one message: unity. The crowds gathered near Glen Burnie High School shouting "thanks for bringing us together" as they counterprotested three Westboro Baptist Church members, a group best known for its anti-gay protests. Westboro members said their purpose was to warn the students and school community to stop "rebelling against God." "We're here because of the teacher [Jeffrey Robert] Sears [Jr]. God sent the pervert. This is a nation of perverts," Westboro member Shirley Phelps-Roper said. Sears, 30, of the 400 block of Luther Road in Glen Burnie, faces 13 sex-related charges, including three counts of sex abuse of…
