Jacobs Joins the Wishes on Wheels Convoy

October 5, 2018
Jacobs Vehicle Systems delivery truck on the road lined up for the truck convoy.  The truck is a large box truck with a white truck and green and white box with the words "Engineered for a better driving experience".

This fall, Jacobs had the opportunity to participate in Wishes on Wheels to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.  We became part of New England’s largest truck convoy which began and ended at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, Connecticut.  Wishes on Wheels’ goal is to organize a yearly family-friendly truck convoy where families, friends, and community members can come together to support children with life-threatening medical conditions.

During the convoy, Make-A-Wish kids had the choice of riding in their favorite truck.  This year’s event had a total of 639 trucks.  While the funds raised this year have not been totaled, in 2017, over $100,000 was donated to Make-A-Wish Connecticut.
