A Light of Hope, Felling Trailers 2023 Trailer for a Cause Auction Dates

Pockets of Hope and Trailer for a Cause LogosFelling Trailers, Inc. is conducting its eleventh annual online auction of an FT-3 drop deck utility trailer to benefit a non-profit organization. Pockets of Hope is the 2023 recipient. Every day, children are rescued from abuse, neglect, and abandonment. These children are confused, scared, and desperate for security and comfort after being separated from family, home, and possessions. Pockets of Hope provides backpacks filled with essential and comfort items like socks, blankets, combs, etc., for these children as they enter foster care. Felling Trailers wants to help generate awareness about Pockets of Hope, the work they do, the children they serve, and the hope and security their backpacks provide to children. Thus, Felling Trailers manufactured and painted one of its most popular trailers, custom “Hope Blue” with custom green pinstriping and bares the Pockets of Hope emblem. An online auction of the trailer will run for five days: September 11th through September 15th. Several Felling Trailers’ suppliers have joined to support Pockets of Hope by sponsoring the trailer build, from lighting to tires to decking. The 2023 Trailer for a Cause sponsors are Trans-Texas, PPG, Dexter, Sealco, Peterson, Industrial Wood (Blackwood), Demco, and Pacific Rim. One hundred percent of the winning bid will benefit Pockets of Hope!

Pockets of Hope provides children, teenagers, and young adults (ages birth-21) with comfort items they can call their own. These are everyday items that many of us take for granted, such as socks, a brush, a blanket, and more. For the recipients, these are more than a backpack; they represent hope and comfort that there are people who care. Whether received when going to a new foster home in the midst of the night or after an incident that has brought them to the CAC (Central Minnesota Child Advocacy Center), they provide each recipient a light of hope that there is good out there. “3/17: One of my favorite work memories is giving an older youth a backpack from Pockets of Hope. This specific youth told me that it was the first time in a really long time that he felt anyone cared about him (& a simple backpack with a few goodies gave him that message!) I love organizations that make a difference. If you have ever thought about children/youth in the foster care system, this is an amazing way to give them some comfort and hope!” (The Impact, www.pocketsofhope.org/the-impact.html).
