Kenneth Wiggins and Ricky Wilson are co-founders of the Truck Pullers. Wooley noted, "We want to thank everybody for the tremendous support we get for this event. We have people who give to this project just like clockwork and we appreciate it." Jones said this year's project helped some 884 children in 427 families at Christmastime.
