Truckin' Awesome: Wages and Repair

Hello, Truckin' Awesome family,
As some of you may know from our Facebook page the truck caught fire destroying the engine in the truck. If you haven't heard about that I'll just briefly explain that on Sunday, July 19th well taking the truck to an event somehow something under the hood started a fire which by the time the truck was pulled over ruined the engine. The truck will be going into the shop this coming Wednesday for its repair. This campaign is to help our wonderful staff you came to love, I hope as much as the food, as well as minor items not covered by the insurance and the deductible for the repair to be done.

As for the repair, we are not sure how long the truck will be there once it goes in on July 29th for repair, and without the truck, we can't now operate at our normal capacity so our staff is paid. We want to be able to still pay them and that is our first priority with this campaign because without our staff we have who have been helping the truck would not be the same.  Once we have all of our wonderful staff paid next will be the deductable and items needing to be fixed that the insurance may not cover.  One item falling under the possibly not covered repair would be touching up or repainting sections on the truck from putting out the fire.

Now that you have an insight into what is going on with the truck I want to thank you all again for being there for us and coming out whenever you can to support us at the truck.  All of us here at Truckin' Awesome want you do know how much you all mean to us and how we can't wait to get back out to everyone.
