The bikers will ride out around 9 a.m., but you have a chance to help Friday. You can drop off a new stuffed animal at All American Check Cashing in Canton or Pearl or head out to Mid-South Machinery in Jackson.

All American Check Cashing 124 W Center St. Canton, 8:30 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.

All American Check Cashing 2860 Highway 80 E Pearl, 9 a.m. - 6 p.m.
