Got a truck-using charity?

by David Zatz on

Aftermarket supplier “AmericanTrucks” has launched a “Positive Payload program,” which provides up to $2,000 to non-profit charities that rely on American pickup trucks. The first two grants went to the Building Goodness Foundation (BGF), which works with people around the world to build community centers, women’s centers, and houses; and Operation Finally Home, which builds mortgage-free houses for American veterans and soldiers’ widows.

Positive Payload will select two winners, twice a year, once in the summer and once in the winter; see their application page. The person who nominates the chosen charity will get $200 and a
t-shirt.
