A little history about our partner Wagons Ho Ho Ho: Did you know? In 2008, RMD Advertising, a Columbus advertising and public relations agency that specializes in working with Challenger Food Brands, decided to use the money earmarked for client holiday gifts to do a little good in the world. Enter Wagons Ho Ho Ho.
That first year, a “whopping” 25 wagons were purchased, built and distributed to needy families during the holiday season. “It helps us all remember during the holidays just how fortunate we are, and gives us an opportunity to say thanks for all the good that that come our way.” We couldn’t have said it better! Thank you, RMD.
Every year since 2018, we’ve hit our goal of building 1,500 wagons PLUS packing a Christmas dinner in each wagon. In 2022 we will be building 2,000 wagons!! Also each year we donated an additional 5,000 pounds of food to area food pantries and work with more than a dozen charitable distribution partners to find families in dire need of help during the holidays.
We’ve come a long way with the help of RMD, Corporate Supporters, Community Organizations, and Volunteers. Join us this year, and see how good it feels to be a Wagoneer!
