FilltheTruck.org is a charity initiative sponsored by Frame USA’s
Monthly Charitable Gift Program for the Month of December. This is our Biggest Charitable Initiative and we need your help!
In December of 2010, Dan Regenold, CEO of Frame USA, had a
vision: to fill an entire 53’ foot semi-truck for a local charity.
He knew this would be his biggest charitable giving project and he
would need a team to assist him. He put together a team of
giving coordinators consisting of: packers, donation collectors,
marketing professionals, and more, to help coordinate this massive event in under 30 days. By the end of December, Frame USA ended up needing a second truck because they over filled their semi by 7%. This resulted in 833 boxes and over 30 skids equaling more than 22,200 donations!
The truck didn’t stop there. To Dan, the truck represented hope, life, and a second chance for people within his community who were down on their luck. It was at this point that the truck became a catalyst, ultimately giving birth to what is now called “Fill The Truck”.
In 2011, Frame USA expanded the Fill The Truck charity initiative to partner with 9 businesses to host a total of 8 trucks and/or storage units throughout the greater Cincinnati, northern Kentucky, and southern Dayton area. Each business hosted a truck (or storage unit) and collected donations for a local charity. In 2012, Fill the truck hosted 6 trucks at 6 locations.
In the last two years 2015 and
2016 Fill the Truck has grown where in each of the last two years
the charitable initiative has collected over 40,000 items at
multiple locations throughout greater Cincinnati..
This year, the 2017 vision is to fill multiple trucks and provide substantial donations to each charity. We have partnered with
17 different businesses and corporate partners to donate
items to seven great charities..
We are collecting donations to
Fill the Truck. Even just basic things such as toilet paper, personal care items, winter clothing, and bedding can have a profound impact for those who are in need. Please consider donating an item today through our website. If you would rather just donate cash, please see our
The truck donations will be delivered to all of the 7 charities around the
Holidays. Every dollar that is donated will go directly to buy needed items with absolutely no administrative costs.
