What is the Truck of Love?
Our local Rock Hill, SC ministry serves the poor who fall through the cracks in the system and are in the most need. We are called on by agencies, individuals, and God. We find the need and we fill it with open hearts. If you are helping us, you are helping individuals that are really in need. It's a win-win situation: the people we serve win by seeing that there is hope in this society, and you win by adopting a part of your community that really needs help to get back on their feet.

The Domino Effect
The example of Truck of Love spreads out beyond the fingers that are touched. The ministry of Truck of Love through Pete and Sue Fullerton has served as a catalyst for many other service projects over the years. Each year Truck of Love sponsors the Tohono O'Odham Truck of Love leadership training and summer day camp on the Tohono O'O'dham Nation in southeast Arizona. Begun in 1987 this camp serves children and adults from all corners of the Nation. It is a collaboration of Truck of Love with the tribe. Volunteer counselors are needed for the two weeks each summer. Donations provide for two meals each camp day and transportation to outlying villages to enable people to get to camp.
Groups all over the country, have benefited from our Day Camp model/system. Every local agency in the area and some national agencies have been interested in how we operate and how we direct our ministry to effectively meet the needs of so many. We love to work with other agencies and people who are interested in developing/improving their own service models and ministries, please contact us if you are interested. We love to bounce off and share ideas with people interested in our work. We are definitely "doers", and firestarters. We are sparkplugs for positive change.
Oftentimes, people will ask us to kindly pray for them and/or their loved ones. All prayer requests are answered and prayed for through the Truck of Love and through the Poor Claire sisters worldwide. All written, spoken, and/or silent intentions are kindly accepted and prayed for.
