Portland Parks Foundation needs one, and preferably a box truck, up to 20-feet long. A large van will work, too: a Sprinter, Ford Transit, Dodge Ram Promaster, or other similar models.

What’s it for? The program is Portland Parks & Recreation’s Mobile Play + Lunch.  The truck will bring learning activities and free lunches to hundreds of kids who don’t live near a park. 

It reaches kids in free school lunch programs who, when school is out in the summer, still need nutrition. 

PPF received a generous, two-year grant from Bank of America’s Neighborhood Builder’s program to help PP&R expand this valuable and fun service to the community.

The only requirement is the vehicle needs to have ten years of useful life ahead of it and it’s needed now. 

Unlike many vehicle donation programs, you can deduct the entire fair market value from taxes with a gift of a vehicle to PPF for Mobile Play + Lunch. 

For more information on vehicle donations, check out IRS publication 4303 or talk with your tax advisor.

Donate a truck and watch PPF transform it into a summer activity and a lifelong memory for kids to cherish. It will be like an ice cream truck or mobile library.
