In the weeks leading up to Christmas, the Southern California minitruck community came together for a few good causes. We were able to attend three events that really made us proud to be minitruckers. From making kids' wishes become realities during the holidays to helping to fight disease, minitruckers searched for a way to help. Over 30 minitruck clubs were involved this year and the list just keeps growing from year to year. Every year these events have gotten larger and we look forward to the coming year's events.
