FilltheTruck.org is a charity initiative sponsored by Frame USA’s Monthly Charitable Gift Program for the Month of December. This is our Biggest Charitable Initiative and we need your help!
In December of 2010, Dan Regenold, CEO of Frame USA, had a vision: to fill an entire 54’ foot semi-truck for a local charity. He knew this would be his biggest charitable giving project and would need a team to assist him. He put together a team of giving coordinators consisting of: packers, donation collectors, marketing/pr professionals, and more, to help coordinate this massive event in under 30 days. By the end of December, Frame USA ended up needing a second truck because they over filled their semi by 7%. This resulted in 833 boxes and over 30 skids equaling more than 22,200 donations!
The truck didn’t stop there. To Dan, the truck represented hope, life, and a second chance for people within his community who were down on their luck. It was at this point that the truck became a catalyst, ultimately giving birth to what is now called “Fill The Truck”.
In 2011, Frame USA expanded the Fill The Truck charity initiative to partner with 9 businesses to host a total of 8 trucks and/or storage units throughout the greater Cincinnati, northern Kentucky, and southern Dayton area. Each business hosted a truck (or storage unit) and collected donations for a local charity. In 2012, Fill the truck hosted 6 trucks at 6 locations.
This year, the 2014 vision is to fill multiple trucks and provide substantial donations to each charity. We have partnered with several businesses and corporate partners.
We are collecting donations to fill the truck. Even just basic things such as toilet paper, personal care items, winter clothing, and bedding can have a profound impact for those who are in need. Please consider donating an item today through our website. If you would rather just donate cash, please see our Cash Donations page.
The truck will be delivered to all of the charities around the 21 of December. Every dollar that is donated will go directly to buy needed items with absolutely no administrative costs.
Feel free to visit any of the trucks - click here for details.
