Santa's Helpers
Parade Feedback

The goal of this event is as follows:

1.To bring a much needed toy to a very deserving boy or girl.
2. To further enhance the image of the towing industry.
3. To Break the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest tow truck parade.


Santa's helpers are the volunteers that come to the Tow Trucks For Tots meetings throughout the year. These individuals spend countless hours helping prepare each year for the World's largest tow truck parade and for that we thank them from the bottom of our hearts.
