FreightCenter’s 2nd Annual Charity Toy Drive Event Kicks Off This Week

The BIG Give truck to deliver Christmas gifts to 1,000 families in Pinellas County this December.

Palm Harbor, FL (PRUnderground) November 20th, 2018

The BIG Give truck is rolling into town and we need the community’s support to fill it with toys and bikes. FreightCenter, lead sponsor of The BIG Give, invites the public to visit any Publix Super Markets location in Pinellas County from now until December 17 and drop off unwrapped toys for boys and girls ages zero to 12.

In support of the Toys for Tots Foundation, four local businesses launched The BIG Give initiative in 2017. The event is the biggest collaborative toy drive benefiting Toys for Tots in our area. Every year, Tampa Bay area residents donate more than 150,000 Christmas gifts to 22,000 children.

Again, this year, a 53-foot semi will consolidate donations from various collection sites from around the county. FreightCenter, Smith Transportation, FASTSIGNS of Palm Harbor and Publix Super Markets are this year’s sponsors.

On December 18, The BIG Give volunteers will deliver donations to the distribution warehouse. Starting December 21, families who registered for assistance will be able to pick up unwrapped toys to give to their children on Christmas Day.
