Kottke Trucking’s friends and family raise $9,621 worth of toys for Trucks and Toys

DECEMBER 21 UPDATE: Last week, we announced how successful the Trucks and Toys drive was this year! Well, it is even more successful than previously reported! With a couple last minutes donations, the total raised for 2018 officially is $9,921!

Again, thank you for your dedication and generous donations to this awesome program!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!

It is once again one of our favorite times of the year and not just because of the Christmas cookies, but because of Trucks and Toys. Our toy drive again this year has been amazingly successful as Kottke Trucking employees, friends and family raised $9,621 worth of toys and goods this year.

It was another incredible year with another incredible showing of dedication from various members of our Kottke Trucking family. With their hard work and effort, the past two years alone we have raised just under $20,000 worth of toys and goods for wonderful organizations.

The organizations that these donations are going to surround our terminal locations, in both Minnesota and Florida, and help ensure happier holidays for those in need. We are proud to support the following organizations with these year’s donations:

  • Renville County Santa’s Closet
  • McLeod County Christmas Project
  • St. Paul Lutheran’s Closet, Hector, MN
  • Common Cup Ministries, Hutchinson, MN
  • Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches, Live Oak, FL
  • Wildwood Elementary School, Wildwood, FL


If you donated $1,000, $500, $100, $50 or $5 to this amazing cause we thank you so much. Every cent goes towards making a child’s holiday a little bit brighter this year. There are many individuals who put so much time and effort into making the Trucks and Toys program a success each and every year and we thank them for their time, dedication and love.

As the Kottke family, we are blessed to have such amazing people in our lives. We thank you and appreciate you for everything you do to make this program a success. We could not do it without you. Trucks and Toys was near and dear to Duane and Connie’s hearts and as we build upon their legacy, we want to let everyone involved know that they would be beaming with pride and joy on what has been accomplished. We could say it until we are blue in the face (and we really do like the color blue), thank you, thank you, thank you!

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