9th Annual “Stuff The Trailer” Week

RALEIGH, NC – The Turning Point Motor Cycle & the 919 Bosses are having their 9th Annual “Stuff the Trailer” Event to help provide toys for kids in need.

The 9th Annual “Stuff The Trailer” week will begin Saturday Dec 17th and run until Christmas Eve, December 24th. There will be 53-foot trailer parked in the parking lot of Walmart located at 1725 New Hope Church Road in Raleigh to accept donations.

For those seven days club members will be living in the Trailer collecting toy donations 24 hours a day. On Christmas Eve the toys will be distributed to randomly-selected low income housing communities in Raleigh.

The need for this effort is great. The number of Raleigh residents living in poverty almost doubled from 2000 to 2012, according to an analysis of census data by Brookings Institution.

More than 16 percent of Raleigh’s population is now in poverty. The Brookings report said an average of 130,242 residents were in poverty between 2008 and 2012, up from 66,177 in 2000.

This year, with all the destruction, victims of Hurricane Matthew will also receive a delivery of toys collected beginning at 10am on Christmas Eve.

Help the Turning Point Motor Cycle & the 919 Bosses blow away last year’s donations be donating a toy at the trailer.

Lets ALL work together and help give these kids Christmas filled with smiles and laughter.
