Trig's 11th annual Stuff-A-Truck food drive wrapped up Wednesday, bringing in $21,000 worth of food and cash donations to benefit local communities. This year, those donations were needed more than ever, with some food pantries requesting the items before the three-week food drive ended. Trig's associates are proud to have beat the previous year's Stuff-A-Truck record of $15,600.

The food drive started February 24 and ran through March 17. The annual event took place at all seven Trig's locations. During that time Trig's guests helped by purchasing pre-packed bags of items each pantry in that community requested, by purchasing a pinup or by rounding up their grocery bill.
Some Trig's locations had so many pre-packed bags they were running out of space to store them and dropped them off at the pantries throughout the three week period – in addition, some pantries were in need before the food drive ended.

Trig's and the Stuff-A-Truck food drive collaborate with local communities and service organizations to literally stuff a semitrailer with food and personal hygiene items to stock the shelves in local food pantries.

The 11th annual Stuff-A-Truck benefited the following organizations. Due to some drop-offs or pickups having already taken place, a semitrailer will only be needed this year for a drop off at The Neighbors' Place in Wausau Friday, March 19 at 8:30am.
