In May of 2014, the Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club Springfield MA received a community service award from the NAACP of Springfield MA for their activities and support in the community.
The Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club is an organization of professional men and women that are dedicated to the sport of motorcycle riding, motorcycle safety and giving back to the community. The Springfield Chapter of the Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club was founded in September of 2004. Each Member is committed to being a positive role model for promoting positive values in their community. They do not discriminate against race, religion, gender or ethnic origin, and accept all who share their values and support their cause.
The Club’s colors represent a long history, which pays homage to the many African Americans that have sacrificed and endured many hardships so that we could be here today. They are a badge of courage, sacrifice and honor, "Lest We Forget".
Their vision is to instill this knowledge into the minds and hearts of our youth of today so that they will become better citizens and leaders of tomorrow. This is the legacy of the Buffalo Soldiers past and present that will live on forever and shall not be forgotten.
The Buffalo Soldiers is a philanthropic organization, donating well over forty eight thousand dollars ($48,000.00), sponsoring and supporting Springfield and surrounding communities with events like; Safety Day providing children with safety helmets and car seats, Back to School Events providing backpacks and school supplies, working with senior citizens to provide gifts for their grandchildren, safe community Halloween parties for the youth of Colonial Estates, in addition to sponsoring the MS Society and the Wounded Warriors.
