Fill the Truck Kicks Off 2011 Campaign to Help Local Charities

 

11 Trucks at 11 Locations to Support 11 Charities in 2011

Cincinnati, Ohio, December 1, 2011.  The official kickoff for “Fill The Truck 2011” was held this morning at Frame USA’s Frame Warehouse Outlet store on Northland Boulevard in Springdale.   Dan Regenold, CEO of Frame USA, thanked the ten new sponsors who have joined this year’s campaign, the companies and organizations that have provided ten additional host locations, and his employees who helped make last year’s campaign successful.

Regenold founded the campaign just before Christmas last year to help a local charity serve people struggling in the weak economy.  His 2010 “Fill the Truck” campaign generated so many donations from vendors, retail stores, customers, and other people in the community that the truck overflowed!  A second vehicle had to be used to deliver some of the donated blankets, sheets, coats, boots, gloves, baby formula, canned food, dishes, detergent, and many other clothing and personal hygiene items to the Healing Center at the Vineyard Community Church in Springdale.

Always looking for ways to improve, Regenold sought additional sponsors and host locations to help more local organizations through a bigger 2011 “Fill the Truck” campaign.  To his surprise, several new sponsors called him to ask how they could help.  “When we started this campaign last year, I didn’t know whether we could fill the truck or not.  After the first weekend, I was scared that we couldn’t,” he said.  “This year, I’m scared again.  Can we fill eleven trucks?  Let’s give it our best effort and help as many people as we can!”

“Fill the Truck 2011” includes eleven trucks at eleven locations to support eleven organizations, so members of our community can donate at the location closest to home or to the charity closest to their heart.  All trucks are now in place and accepting donations, which will be delivered to the beneficiary organizations just before Christmas.

Sponsors for “Fill the Truck 2011” include Planes Moving & Storage, Walgreens, Innomark Communications, Trigon Imaging Systems, Metro Containers, Inc., Xerox, Spring Valley Bank, Centerville Coin and Jewelry, Visionaries & Voices, 55KRC, and Frame USA.

Beneficiary Organizations of “Fill the Truck 2011” include The Healing Center, Reach Out Lakota, Valley Interfaith, Hannah’s Treasure Chest,  Matthew: 25 Ministries, CAIN (Churches Active in Northside), Inter Parish Ministries, the Brighton Center, Son Ministries, One Way Farm, and Frederick Douglass School..
