For 12 years now, Charles Norton, owner of Norton’s Tow Squad, has rallied all his tow truck driver friends and encouraged them to buy gifts which they deliver to Youth Service Inc. He said tow truck drivers get a bad rap but events like Tows For Tots help their reputation:
“There are obstacles not of their doing where circumstances were created where they just could not stay connected to family,” she said, “and so we do whatever we can to make sure that especially during this high emotional season that they have some happiness.”
Since partnering with Tows for Tots, Bailey shared they were able to provide at least one present for each child in their program. She said they’ve come to rely on these tow truck drivers over the years who liters bring truck loads of gifts for the YSI kids.
“During this particular time which is at the end of the month, you know, when your income may be exhausted,” she said, “it’s a huge boost to a family to see that there are so many people being kind.”
