Trucks and Toys seek donations
Brenny Specialized Inc., in partnership with the Minnesota Trucking Association, is seeking donations for the annual Trucks and Toys Campaign. Beginning as a small outreach, the MTA Trucks and Toys gift drive has developed into a large-scale holiday event, delivering toys to more than 2,000 children who may not otherwise receive a gift. Toys are collected across the state and then distributed to three metro-area charities and 14 organizations in greater Minnesota that help families in need.
The community is invited to donate to this year’s campaign. New, nonviolent and unwrapped toys can be dropped off at Brenny Specialized Inc., 8505 Ridgewood Road, St. Joseph.
For information on this event, contact Rachel Greenwell, manager of education and events for MTA, at (651) 646-7351.
