We would like to send a BIG SHOUT OUT to Nick Cockerham, our very own 'St. Nick', owner of North Star Foundations, Inc. for donating the use of a large box truck or enclosed trailer to our giving project for more than a decade and counting. Without which our ability to collect and deliver for so many charitable partners at once during the winter season wouldn't otherwise be possible! THANK YOU!
