Event Description:

Two Connecticut companies want to share the warmth of the holidays with local families in need. For the fifth year, Connecticut Trailers & Powersports is teaming up with Bolton Motors and its local State Police department to ensure that no family goes cold this season by hosting the “Stuff a Trailer” annual winter clothing collection.

The campaign will accept new jackets, hats, boots and gloves for children and adults from November 29 through December 20, 2019 at both Bolton-based businesses. 

There is a convenient drop box located at the Bolton Motors showroom at 99 New Bolton Rd. and a small decorated trailer inside the Connecticut Trailers’ showroom, located at 7 Bolton Center Road.

“We want to collect enough coats to fill at least one of our largest trailers from top to bottom, corner to corner” said Gary Bergeron, President of Connecticut Trailers. “In order to boost donations, every time a trailer or golf cart is purchased, we will donate a new coat from Zahner’s in Rockville to the cause in the customer’s name.”

Connecticut State Police Officers with the Bolton Residents Troopers Office will be onsite to personally accept donations on Saturday, December 14 from 2:30-5:30p at Connecticut Trailers. Then on December 20, the troopers will pick up all of the winter gear collected and distribute the items to both families in need and hospitals across the state.  

“It is our goal to help as many families as possible with this crucial program during the season of giving,” said Bergeron. “We hope to double the number of coats we collected last year!”
