About Us

Our History

image29

After tragically losing their beloved son Maddox in a terrible accident at the Pittsburgh Zoo, the family made a simple request in his obituary:  “In lieu of flowers, the family requests everyone bring a toy construction truck to be donated to a children’s Christmas charity.”


This idea was based on Maddox’s love of construction vehicles and his passion to share anything he had with his friends. His parents felt it only fitting to give to others, in memory of their son.


This simple request prompted an unexpected, and incredibly overwhelming, outpour of support that inadvertently transformed into a non-profit organization — Trucks For Maddox Charitable Trust. It is the desire of Maddox’s family to continue this cause while honoring Maddox and keeping his vivacious spirit alive.

Our Goals

The Trucks For Maddox Charitable Trust is dedicated to provide new toy construction trucks to charitable organizations that distribute to less fortunate and disadvantaged children. Our primary goal is to bring smiles to disadvantaged children by gifting toy trucks. The hope is for children to experience joy from receiving a new toy who may not otherwise be fortunate enough to do so. The activities that we administer will provide opportunities to collect toys and secure donations to support our goal.


In 2012, over 4,500 toys were successfully delivered to children throughout the Pittsburgh region. The hope is to multiply this effort in the years to come.


We have donated over 16,000 toys in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia!

Events

A Touch-a Truck event invites local public works departments, organizations and community truck owners to set–up their vehicles and let kids get behind the wheel, honk the horns, take pictures and meet the men and women who operate the trucks every day.
