The Spirit of Christmas is all about giving, and is evidenced best in a generous heart. For the last 18 years, River States Truck and Trailer has given back to its communities by working with local organizations such as Toys for Tots to fill the space under the tree for many children in need.
During the year, River States says weekly voluntarily collections of $2 from employees who opt to wear jeans on Fridays are collected and are combined with a generous donation from employees and the company. All monies collected and donated are then used to purchase the toys, bikes, sporting equipment, dolls, art supplies, Legos and the year’s hottest toys for the annual toy drive.
This year River States totaled nearly $9,500 in gifts and donations, a record for the dealership. That total brought the company’s overall donation of more than $35,000 in company history.
