The beloved Mother’s Day Truck Convoy needs a new home immediately. Make-A-Wish® Philadelphia, Delaware & Susquehanna Valley was recently informed by Burle Business Park that they are no longer able to host the growing event. With just 10 months to find a new location, the future of this iconic event is at risk and we need local support to help us. “We need an area in Lancaster that can hold 450 - 600 tractor trailers, along with room for the carnival and day-of festivities” says Regional Director Ben Lee. Without the funds raised by the annual Mother’s Day Truck Convoy, the chapter would have to significantly reduce the number of wishes they are able to grant throughout the region. The 2019 Convoy raised just over $600,000, enough to fund almost all the wishes granted in the Susquehanna Valley in 2019. “We are potentially looking at going from granting 75 wishes a year to granting just 15 per year” said Lee. The Convoy has become an annual tradition in Lancaster County after local wish kid Matt wished to ride in a trailer truck and talk on the CB radio with his sister back in 1990. Truck drivers gathered together to help grant Matt’s wish and now, 30 years later, the event has earned honors in the Guinness Book of World Records and has raised millions of dollars for Make-A-Wish®. This is an event that the community looks forward to on an annual basis and is part of the fabric of Lancaster County. If you know of a location that may be able to accommodate the 2020 Mother’s Day Truck Convoy, May 10, 2020, please contact Ben Lee at 717-283-4878
