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!
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 2016 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.
To help with the vision, Frame USA will be donating to Fill The Truck in appreciation for your online order for the month of December.
We are proud to support this great organization. Be sure to donate during the checkout process to help us support this great charity!
Breast cancer affects 1 in 8 women during their lives — a frightening statistic, considering the cancer’s devastating effects. Whether women experience it directly or help their friends and family deal with the shock, organizations like the Bethesda Foundation are reaching out to help. That’s why we at Frame USA recently sponsored and attended the TPC River’s Bend Ladies’ Golf “Tee Off Against Breast Cancer” event.
The golfing event went to directly support the Mary Jo Cropper Family Center for Breast Cancer — a center that does far more than raise awareness. All donations go to assist in cancer research, direct medical care for affected patients and general support for those going through this life-altering disease.
It is because of these reasons that we were (and still are) proud to support the above foundations, and plan to do so whenever we can as a company. To learn more about the Mary Jo Cropper Center, click here.

97 year-old Nancy Cole of Spartanburg, Kansas recently opened up her first art show in… Well, ever. In a story of true inspiration, Nancy began her pursuits in art at the age of 90 and never looked back. It tooks seven years of practice and creating piece after piece, but eventually she was ready for the big time. Her instructor, Bailie, saw something special in her work and stories, eventually calling up a local gallery for an official art show featuring Nancy’s work. The resulting art show hailed in great responses from the community and beyond, selling two art pieces within the first 13 minutes of the show.
As artists ourselves, this story is truely inspiring. To be able to create art at such an advanced age is really special! Nancy’s age only adds to the charm of her colorful work. Nancy recalls knowing “historic figures from seemingly different worlds – Gen. George S. Patton, Jr. and artist Georgia O’Keeffe”, and taking wild adventures such as “hot air ballooning in Africa with the Philadelphia Zoological Society.” Nancy believes that life is what you make it, if you take hold of it and live to be your best. We can’t help but agree and take that advice to heart!
“This has been quite an experience… I feel very grateful and very humble about all of this,” she said.

Frame USA was visited by Fox 19 news in Cincinnati for the release of the latest news on Fill The Truck. After first admiring our impressive selection of ready made picture frames, the camera crews started rolling.
Fill the Truck has been at the center of Cincinnati’s holiday media since the initiative’s origin in 2010. Supporting charities all over the area, it has certainly been worthy of the attention it has received. Frame USA has primarily supported The Healing Center, but always manages to pull in other business partners like Walgreens, Spring Valley Bank and Clippard Instruments to support their own charities.
