Jacobs Joins the Wishes on Wheels Convoy
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.
