Stoughton Lease — a rental and leasing division of STI Holdings Inc., the parent company of Stoughton Trailers, LLC — is aiding victims of the flooding caused by Tropical Storm Harvey in the Houston, Texas metropolitan area with the donation of a semi-trailer to transport relief items to the ravaged region.
The trailer, which left this morning from the Boys & Girls Club of Dane County in Madison, Wis., is packed with a variety of items intended to help those affected by the storm and flooding. Some of the contents include toiletries, diapers and baby wipes, school supplies, flashlights, batteries, pet food, board games and much more. Boys & Girls Club President & CEO Michael Johnson organized the donation drive and arranged for transportation to get the materials to Texas.
Stoughton Trailers was invited to support the efforts and responded by donating a dry van semi-trailer rental through Stoughton Lease.
"Stoughton Trailers is a big believer in giving back to the community, whether it's here in Wisconsin or in Houston, Texas," said Marketing Manager Ron Jake. "We're glad to help with these efforts in any way we can."
Many community organizations stepped up to answer the Boys & Girls Club's call for help, from the JJ Watt Foundation to the American Family Insurance Foundation to the Monona Grove football program.
The trailer will arrive in Austin, where it will be unloaded, and the supplies will be taken to Houston as needed in the coming weeks.
