WICHITA, Kan. – The Truckers Christmas Group, a non-profit organization that raises money to help the families of truckers during the Holiday season, was able to garner enough donations this year to help 12 families have a better Christmas.
Sixteen families were nominated for assistance, with three being eliminated during the group’s vetting process and one family not able to be contacted.
According to the organization’s website, $5,150 was raised, shy of the $20,000 goal Truckers Christmas Group was aiming for.
Completely volunteer based, all the money raised by Truckers Christmas Group goes to the families of truck drivers in need in both Canada and the U.S.
Each family that the charity helps is sent a minimum of $500 in cash and can use the money any way they choose.
This was the seventh year the group raised funds, and have managed to help 112 trucking families with over $66,000 during that time.
