Truckers Christmas Group Announces 14th Annual Holiday Fundraising Campaign
The Truckers Christmas Group (TCGO), a non-profit organization that raises funds to help professional CDL drivers and their families in the United States and Canada, announces its 14th Annual Holiday Fundraising Campaign.
PARK CITY, Ka., November 14th, 2021 – For the 14th year in a row, Truckers Christmas Group (TCGO) is excited to announce the start of its annual fundraiser event. Over the last 13 years, TCGO has helped over 217 trucking families with more than $127,000 raised. They expect to continue making a difference in the trucking community this year.
Despite 2020 being a challenging year for most charities because of the social, political, and economic climates, it was also a difficult year for many truckers that were impacted one way or another by COVID-19. However, Truckers Christmas Group was still able to make a difference in the lives of many truckers, with over 35 trucking families assisting with a non-restricted grant of $650 per family in 2020. But, despite last year’s success, TCGO knows they could not have done this without the faithful giving and support from both their sponsors and generous donations from individuals in the trucking industry.
As another year ends, TCGO anticipates another record year of applications and seeks donations from both sponsors and individuals to help support truckers in need.
According to Mark Abraham, President of TCGO. “2020 was a difficult year for truckers across the United States and Canada. With the after-effects and continuation of COVID-19 for truckers and their families. Whether from illness or unemployment, truckers across the United States and Canada need aid this year more than ever before. Our hope for the 2021 annual fundraiser is to help even more truckers and their families this year and continue to make a real difference in the trucking industry. The donation of goods and funds will help to ensure that every truck driver in need can support their families during the holiday season. Even the smallest donation helps to make a difference in the lives of truckers in need.”
To raise awareness of their charity and drum up more support and donations, TCGO has begun its annual marketing campaign to help spread the word. This year, TCGO has several outstanding marketing campaigns up its sleeve. Here are just a few of the marketing campaigns and events that TCGO is running this year.
