Making A Difference: American Trucks' Positive Payload 2019 Summer Winners

One of our happiest and proudest associations here at TireKicker is with the fine folks at American MuscleExtreme Terrain and American Trucks.  They have been loyal advertisers since 2012. 

Right now, American Trucks is doing something worth writing about (buying ad space at TireKicker doesn't guarantee editorial coverage). 

It's called the Positive Payload Program.  If you volunteer for or work with a charity that uses Ford F-150sChevy SilveradosGMC Sierras or Dodge Rams in its service to the community, you can apply for a $2,000 donation to that charity.

The summer 2019 winners are: 

Applachia Service Project, which provides home repair and home replacement to families in Central Appalachia.  The organization also assists in disaster recover for incidents such as floods and fires that occur in a five-state service area.  A variety of trucks in the fleet assist with transporting of all materials needed from one job site to the next.  American trucks enable ASP to complete repairs for families in need of warm, safe, healthy and dry places to live. ASP workers and trucks have provided home repairs to 433 families and gifted 28 new homes to families living in Central Appalachia.  

Operation Tiny Home, which is a 501(c)(3) national non-profit that assists people struggling with severe housing instability to maintain a life of dignity through custom high-quality tiny housing solutions and empowerment training programs.  Through "Building a Better Future for Veterans" and "Dignity Housing for Native Americans" programs, they teach carpentry and construction skills while participants build a high-quality custom tiny home to support someone in need in their community.
