AmericanTrucks.com (AT) established the Positive Payload program in April 2017 to support non-profit organizations using pickup trucks in field work that improves local communities. This July, the auto parts retailer has selected more charities to receive awards through their grant program, bringing the total donations to $20,000. Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity has been awarded a donation and has been entered into a drawing to win an additional $2,000.
As AT looks to the future, it has decided to change the way the program works, so that more organizations can benefit. Starting July 1, 2019, the grants will no longer be awarded on a bi-annual basis but will be moved to a “rolling” basis. This comes with a change to the amount of the individual grants given. While the ongoing program will seek to award a greater quantity of organizations with smaller checks, there will continue to be one big donation given to a charity once a year.
The AT team extends sincere congratulations to all the Positive Payload grant recipients for 2019. With the new rules in place, the company looks forward to awarding additional organizations in the summer, the fall and into 2020.
