PLYMOUTH – Grela Well Drilling, Inc. invites families to bring their children to see a monster truck, ambulance and drill rig up close Nov. 20 while collecting food and toys for the community.
The inaugural food and toy drive will be held, rain or shine, from 4 to 7 p.m. at Grela Well Drilling, Inc. at 143 Main St. In addition to the monster truck, ambulance and drill rig, visitors will be able to enjoy homemade cookies, coffee, water and apple cider. They will also receive goodie bags.
Those who bring a non-perishable food item to benefit the Plymouth Community Food Pantry, and/or an unwrapped toy to benefit the “Small Wonders” program at town hall which collects Christmas gifts for families in need, will have their names entered into a raffle. Raffle winners will receive gift baskets containing gift cards and other items from local and area businesses including Sunrise Deli, Lee Hardware, Hogan Cider Mill and more.
Additionally, a coloring contest will be held for children who will be able to color in a picture of Grela Well Drilling’s monster truck to have a chance of winning a remote controlled monster truck toy.
Winners of the raffle and coloring contest will be announced on Grela Well Drilling’s Facebook page, facebook.com/Grelawelldrillinginc.
Bonnie Austin, administrator at Grela Well Drilling, said that Grela Well Drilling has been in business in Plymouth for 60 years and “likes to support the community that has supported us for so many years.” They have supported “Small Wonders” and held food drives for the Food Pantry in the past, but this is the first year that it will be a combined event featuring the monster truck.
“Our monster truck has been an eye-catcher for our company for many years and families are always stopping by and asking if they can take pictures with it,” said Austin. “For our Monster Truck Toy and Food Drive, it will also be decorated with Christmas lights and we’ll be giving kids temporary monster truck tattoos on their hands.”
Austin added that Grela Well Drilling will also start up their monster truck at the event so kids can hear it roar to life.
Austin encouraged families to come out to the event and have a good time.
“Come out and check out our monster truck, meet our family-run company and help support the community,” she said.
Parking will be available both at Grela Well Drilling, Inc. and at The Lyceum at 181 Main St.
