Kottke Trucking collects over $5,000 worth of toys for Trucks and Toys

Every holiday season, for over 20 years now, Kottke Trucking has been involved with the Trucks and Toys campaign. The trucking industry from around the state of Minnesota comes together to collect toys that are given to children in need. Kottke Trucking alone this year collected and donated over $5,000 of toys.

Kottke Trucking donates these collections to three charities in outstate Minnesota: Santa’s Closet of Renville County, Common Cup Ministries and the McLeod County Christmas Project.

We are proud to have our office in Buffalo Lake be a drop off site for these toys. We collected over $4,000 of toys and cash donations and Kottke Trucking donated another $1,000 to that to get to our grand total of $5,033.

The reach of our Trucks and Toy donations did not stop in Minnesota this year. With our recent acquisition of a terminal in Wildwood, Florida, we saw a need to also help those in need in the state of Florida.

The charity we worked with in Florida is the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches. This program takes at-risk children and places them in one of six different locations throughout the state of Florida in a true home setting. Through the donations of drivers and employees of Kottke Trucking, we were able to donate six 54” Spalding basketball hoops, one for each location of the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches.

We are incredibly thankful for all the generous donations of toys and cash that have helped us have a successful Toys and Trucks campaign this holiday season. Thank you for helping us spread holiday cheer for over 20 years, it truly makes this the most wonderful time of the year.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year.
