Five years ago, Tornadoes ripped through Oklahoma and killed two little boys. Ryan and Cole were three years old and 15 months old. Our hearts ached for our Oklahoma neighbors. We are what some people called Mini Trucker's. In times of need we come together as family. We are a group of people who ride low, and make our trucks look as great as they can on a fixed income. Some a lot nicer than others. Each truck shows a persons personality.
When Ryan and Cole passed away we wanted to do something for our community. We wanted to make a difference. We started Mini Trucker's United and Tuck'n 4 Toys Car & Truck show. Our first year we were able to take care of every family on our list and still help out Toys 4 Tots. The second year we were able to help 8 families who had either had a death of a parent, House fire or were a tornado victim. Our third year we donated our Toys to Toys 4 Tots again and were able to help out five families on our list. On our fourth year we donated too Salvation Army's Angel Tree and even though our show was rained out we still helped 5 families! On our sixth year (2015) We helped out 18 families, and helped a local public school, that has a Christmas program for low income families. We helped a family that had a three year old little boy that was hit and killed by some teenagers driving way to fast.
Our main Goal has always been to make sure we could always make sure these kids had something to open on Christmas Morning. Unlike Toys 4 Tots or Salvation Army Angel Tree which we support, we do not have a income guide line. Regardless of Income, Race, or circumstance we try to help. Each year our show grows a little more. Last year we had 55 registrations, and are looking to double that if not triple that this year.
Two years ago we teamed up with SEFF (Safe Events for families), to include our car show with the activities of Boo On Bell, which is trick or treating, a Zombie March, Paranormal Tours, Vendors, A carnival and much more! Our registration fee is $25.00 or a unwrapped toy at the same value.
