When you’re on the road, you do the right thing. When you modify your pickup, you do the right thing. It’s good to see American Trucks—a premium sponsor of Adpulp.com—extend this concept well beyond the act of driving and modifying trucks.
American Trucks is actively offering scholarships to enterprising students and the Paoli, Pennsylvania-based aftermarket parts company is issuing grants to local non-profits doing work in the industrial sector.
What’s In Your Payload Is What Matters
AmericanTrucks.com established the Positive Payload program in April 2017 to support non-profit organizations using pickup trucks in field work that improves local communities. This July, the auto parts retailer has selected two more charities to receive awards through their grant program. The list of organizations benefiting from the program has grown to include Appalachia Service Project, and Operation Tiny Home.
The two organizations are leveraging home building expertise in their charitable work. Appalachia Service Project provides home repair and home replacement to families in Central Appalachia. The organization also assists in disaster recovery for incidents such as, floods and fires that occur in a five-state service area. Operation Tiny Home, based in the Pacific Northwest, is an organization with a mission to provide housing support to those struggling with housing instability.
