What is Trucks for Smiles?

All proceeds benefit Make-A-Wish®

Trucks for Smiles is a registered and approved fundraising benefit for Make-A-Wish®. Make-A-Wish fulfills the wishes of children with diagnosed, life-threatening medical conditions. Your donation to Trucks for Smiles will make it possible for more children to receive a dream come true, whether it be visiting Disney World, receiving a laptop, or even swimming with dolphins. Trucks for Smiles is sponsored and hosted by W. W. Friedline, Inc. We seek to use donated goods and services whenever possible, so that more funds can be made available to full children’s wishes. All gifts are deeply appreciated and help further the mission of the convoy. Register for the convoy and donate by contacting Mark Friedline. Office: 814-445-2193     Cell: 814-521-3656     Email:
