ALEXANDRIA, KY (FOX19) -

Volunteers with the Twisted Cruzers Riding Club will gather Friday morning to load up donations they received this week and deliver them to wildfire victims in Tennessee.

The Northern Kentucky motorcycle club was busy late into the night Thursday holding a relief drive at Pleasant Ridge Baptist Church off Alexandria Pike.

The donated items, which include bottled water, diapers and paper towels, will go to firefighters battling the wildfires in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge and the displaced residents now living in shelters.

The president of Twisted Cruzers, Jack "Box Car" Morgan, said that all donations are expected to be delivered by Saturday.

The Sevier County Rescue Squad will distribute the items.
