Kottke Trucking, Family and Friends Raise $10,025 for Trucks and Toys

It is no secret that 2020 hasn’t been the best of years, but we always find it important to find things to smile about. We at Kottke Trucking are smiling today. We are proud to announce that Kottke Trucking employees, friends and family raised $10,025 worth of toys and goods for Trucks and Toys this year!

Over the past three holiday seasons, the generosity throughout the Kottke Trucking family has raised just over $29,000 in the effort to make the Christmas and holiday season a little brighter for kids in need in both Minnesota and Florida. The organizations receiving these donations surround our terminal locations helping us help the people directly in our communities. We proudly donated to the following organizations this year:

  • Renville County Santa’s Closet (MN)
  • McLeod Country Holiday Project (MN)
  • Common Cup Ministries (Hutchinson, MN)
  • Paul’s Closet (Hector, MN)
  • City of Davenport Sharing Christmas With You (FL)
  • The Mission of Winter Haven (FL)


To see a donation total like this in a year as crazy as this is truly astounding. It shows how great of people that we are lucky to be surrounded by in the Kottke Trucking family. Be it your donation was big or small, we thank you. Every bit helps make the season a little bit brighter.

There are multiple people who put so much time and effort into the Trucks and Toys campaign and we thank you for your hard work and dedication to this great cause. Be it that you’ve worked on it since day one or just jumped in recently, you are total rock stars.

As the Kottke family, this cause is especially near and dear to our hearts. This was one of the programs that Duane and Connie loved so much and dedicated a lot of time to. They would be so proud to see how much this program has grown and the love that it has shown across our communities. To anyone that has helped support this cause over the past 20-plus years, we thank you. We are blessed to have the best employees, friends and family we could ever truly ask for. As great as this year’s campaign was, as we always say, we hope next year’s is even better. As Duane would say, “Let’s go!”

May your light shine bright this holiday season! Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas!
