On Aug. 14, Bikers Against Heroin (BAH), a Medford-based organization committed to education and awarenss of the heroin problem on Long Island,  presented a check in the amount of $4,000 to Mercy Center Ministries in Patchogue.

The money, which was raised during a Run From the Needle bike run fundraiser on July 14, will benefit Mercy Center’s three local Suffolk shelters serving 16- to 23-year-old  homeless young women and women with children. Both organizations strive to make their communities stronger and safer by providing essential services to people who find themselves in crisis.
