18 Wheels Grande Prairie was once again a tremendous success. They out did last years totals with 14 pallets of food and $538 in cash! In a unique twist, the 18 Wheels Team chose to use the cash to purchase 21 $25 Super Store gift cards which were given to the Food Bank to use in whatever way they saw fit.

 With the truck strategically parked at the Superstore in Grande Prairie, donations started coming in as soon as the doors opened.
 We caught up with Rosenau Transport Managers Les and Rosa Harnett early on in their first day and they were already busy at work loading donations into the trailer.
 Lots of great people, volunteers and even a few furry friends dropped by throughout the day!

Every single donation counts but throughout the event, we had many large donations from individuals and groups!

There were collection boxes inside the store as well and 18 Wheels Volunteers were inside frequently throughout the day emptying the boxes and bringing the donations out to the trailer!

No event is complete without a visit from the big guy himself. Santa was on hand several times throughout the day making sure that things ran smoothly!

The trailer looks beautiful at night and attract plenty of attention from a distance!

A terrific idea! As people made donations, their names were added to the 18 Wheels Poster Board!

Grande Prairie is already planning next years event and looking forward to making a difference!
