Pathways, Inc. Announces Trucks! Trucks! Trucks! (Drive-Through) Community Event
Corning, NY — Pathways, Inc., in partnership with T&R Towing and Service Centers, is pleased to announce the 3rd Annual Trucks! Trucks! Trucks! community event. Typically, the Trucks! event serves as a fundraiser to benefit the Agency’s childcare programs, Kids’ Adventure Club and the Erwin Child & Family Center, however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event will be free to the public and the format has been altered to a drive-through. On Saturday, August 8, 2020, from 10:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m., the community is invited to attend the Trucks! Trucks! Trucks! (Drive-Through) held in Parking Lots C & D at Corning Community College, 1 Academic Drive, Corning, New York.
Bryan Polmanteer, owner of T&R Towing and Service Centers said, “We’re thrilled to still be able to offer Trucks! Trucks! Trucks! as a community event and this year it’s FREE to the public!”
Joseph Cevette, President and CEO of Pathways, Inc. commented, “In order to ensure the safety of all participants, the event will be a drive-through experience. Guests will be able to see and hear all of the vehicles as they drive by, including big construction trucks, fire trucks, race cars, a crane, police cars, and more. We’re expecting nearly 30 vehicles.”
Cevette said, “Additionally, like Pathways, Inc., many of the participants bringing vehicles to the event are essential businesses that have continued crucial services throughout the pandemic. We’d like the community’s help with celebrating them and the work that they do each and every day. We encourage families to make signs or find other creative ways to show their gratitude as they drive through.”
The first 100 children will receive a goody bag filled with fun activities, toys, and some information about the participating businesses.
The Pathways, Inc. Erwin Child & Family Center and Kids’ Adventure Club programs would like to thank T&R Towing and Service Centers for their generous partnership and sponsorship of this year’s modified Trucks! Trucks! Trucks! (Drive-Through) event, in addition to Goodrich Auto Works for their donation of “Goody Bags” and all of the businesses that participated by bringing a vehicle or donating items for the goody bags!
