Princeton High School (PHS) students and staff have the spirit of giving. They were part of the annual Fill the Truck drive that collects food and other items for charity. The PHS Key Club spearheaded our part of the event. This year’s drive was a huge success.
The sixth annual #FillTheTruck for Charity, serving six charities in the Cincinnati Metropolitan area, collected 44,818 items. The item count was up 60% from total collections of 28,008 items in 2015 and completely filled two 53 foot semi-trucks.
13,792 items were delivered to the Healing Center as part of the 2016 Fill the Truck initiative. The remaining 31,026 items were delivered to five other charities. The items collected include Personal Care Items, Hygiene Kits, Winter Clothing, Food and New Home Products.
“I am truly amazed to see the number of people coming forward and getting involved with this charity. From Day one we could barely keep up with the contributions that help people in the area that are struggling. Our building was literally filled up with donations. Thank You to the wonderful people of Cincinnati who helped make this happen,” said CEO Dan Regenold.
