Truckloads of Treasures 2017
On Thursday, Dec. 7, more than 200 employees, family members and friends, took over the Joplin Target, filling shopping carts to the brim and checking items off lists to ensure that no one is forgotten this holiday season. The shopping spree was part of CFI’s annual Truckloads of Treasure holiday giving campaign, a tradition that began in 1993.
In total, thanks in part to last minute donations, CFI employees raised $45,000 to benefit various charities including the Salvation Army, who will be providing the gifts to area children and elderly in need. During the shopping spree event at Target, CFI also presented checks for $500 each to seven local charities: Boys & Girls Club of Southwest Missouri, Camp Quality, Pro Musica, Area Agency on Aging, Children’s Haven, Ronald McDonald House of the Four States and Art Feeds.
Employee donations are collected each year from January through November to fund the Truckloads of Treasures event. This year, as incentives to donate, CFI raffled off prizes ranging from hundreds of dollars in gift cards to weeks of paid time off from work.
In addition to the exciting shopping spree taking place in Joplin, CFI’s four additional US terminals and offices in Mexico and Canada will be hosting shopping sprees and check presentations of their own this week and next.
