CFI preps for the holiday season with tree giveaway


We may still be prepping for Thanksgiving, but an area business is already thinking ahead.

An anonymous donor provided Joplin trucking company CFI with 49 artificial trees. Most of which were dropped off at area schools like Kelsey Norman. Terry Cunningham says the company’s commitment to give back to the community during the holidays isn’t stopping there.

“Our Truckloads of Treasure event which is coming up at Target on December the 7th. I think that this year we raised about $45 thousand dollars that we’re donating to the Salvation Army so the kids can get the stuff they need to help make their Christmas kind of brighter,” says Terry Cunningham, CFI Marketing Department.

In addition to schools, two other trees were taken to two senior centers and one each to Children’s Haven and the Area Agency on Aging.
