In what is looking to be an annual tradition, Stoops Freightliner-Quality Trailer’s Ft. Wayne location once again teamed up with area school, St. John Emmanuel, to help fill dinner tables across the community this holiday season.
After putting the decals in place, Stoops donated a box truck for operation “Fill this Van” in an effort to create awareness and housing for the non-perishable donations being made to the food drive. The van shared its time between the dealership and the school over the course of three weeks as employees, customers and students continued to give.
The non-perishable food items collected will go to benefit the St. Mark and Hessen Cassel food banks in the Ft. Wayne area,  which assists more than 225 families each month in meeting their grocery needs.
Stoops Ft. Wayne plans to continue their efforts with SJE in making this food drive an annual event and give back to the community.
