We will be having a fund raiser for Trucker Charity which we have named Bail out Bunk. There will be a Big Rock truck in the yard Friday which will serve as the jail. If you wish to have someone arrested you need to pay $5.00 to have them put in jail and the reason why. They will then be sentenced by a mock trial to include myself as judge, Janine as prosecutor, and Scott as defense attorney. After they are sentenced and the bail amount is set they will need to raise money to cover the cost of the bail money (be prepared to get a call from jail).
Let’s have some fun!!!!!

Community Interfaith Food Pantry
If your in the area and need a ride give us a call
Trucker Charity Inc with partnership with The Association of Christian Trucker's has opened the food pantry to trucker's located on I-70/exit 68 in Brownstown,Illinois. Please help us get the word out to those who need help or want to help by simply sharing this post.
Drivers needing help can stop by 7 days a week to receive up to 3 days of food to get them by.
In order to fulfill this portion of our mission we can't do it without your help. You ask "How can I help?"
One way is stop in and donate any non perishable food item, disposable razor's, soap shampoo, can openers, glad ware,feminine hygiene products, and any other basic need that a driver might need to get by until they receive a check or an advance. We have plans to quickly double the available food items. The ACT has put out a request for more shelving. We are working on that as well. If you happen to be in the area and have some please let us know.
