Wisconsin Towers Plan Parade to Benefit Kids

Dec 3rd, 2010 | By | Category: National News

On Saturday, Dec. 11, the city of Janesville, Wis., is holding a tow truck parade in conjunction with Chicago’s Tow Truck for Tots annual parade. The effort will benefit the children in the Janesville area.

The goal of the event is to bring a much-needed toy to a very deserving boy or girl, and to further enhance the image of towing equipment operators everywhere, the press release states.

Wisconsin Towing Association members who attended the 2010 Annual Convention donated toys and monies to support the event.

On the day of the parade, Wisconsin towers are to be ready to go at 9:15 a.m. at the I39/I-90 NW rest area just north of the state line to meet with Illinois towers and then parade to Janesville, ending at Traxler Park. Toys will be presented to the Salvation Army and Echo at the park, and there will be light refreshments.

Toy donations need to be new and unwrapped; No guns, swords, stuffed toys or products with lead-based paint. There is a severe shortage of toys for kids ages 0-4 years and 12-18 years. The older children enjoy sporting goods or gift cards.
