Trucks & Toys
Our mission with the Trucks & Toys program is to create joy by connecting children in need at local charities with holiday gifts provided by trucking industry professionals.
For more than 15 years, trucking companies have pulled together to address the needs of less fortunate families by collecting toys for local, Minnesota charities.
A big thank you to everyone who donated to MTA’s Trucks & Toys program this year. Whether you donated your time, money, equipment or toys, you helped spread joy to thousands of kids and teens throughout the state of Minnesota who may have not otherwise received presents this season.
Over $28,000 came in as monetary donations through the MTA alone, along with additional toys collected by member collection sites which helped provide gifts to over 2,000 kids at 14 charities throughout the state, including the Twin Cities Metro, Duluth, Bemidji, Fairmont and New Ulm.
Additionally, other MTA members throughout the state raised their own Trucks & Toys funds to purchase toys for children at charities in their areas. These funds brought our Trucks & Toys grand total to over $65,000 this year, serving over 3,500 kids and teens.
THANK YOU AGAIN! This wouldn't be possible without everyone's hard work and generous donations to this program.
How to Help
We donate to charities throughout the state. If your company is outside of the metro-area and you would like to volunteer as a collection site, contact the MTA and we will get you in touch with your territory captain.
If your company is located in the metro-area, you can volunteer as a collection site. This means individuals and other companies can bring their toys to your company.
Make a monetary donation. 100% of pledged money is used to purchase toys for children in need.
Donate on an individual or company basis. Simply drop off your non-violent toy donation to the nearest collection site by November 28.
