PORTLAND, OR – TEC Equipment is proud to support the efforts of Oregon Harbor of Hope to launch their Mobile Assistance Program, in which they will mobilize one shower truck and one laundry truck to dozens of homeless camps and schools across Portland and its surrounding communities.
TEC’s contributions include providing two trucks at discounted pricing, engineering expertise to facilitate retrofitting the trucks to support shower and laundry equipment, the use of service space to facilitate the work, and support to facilitate wrapping the trucks with brand elements to identify and promote the mobile services.
TEC’s commitment to supporting our community is a key value guided by President and CEO, David Thompson, who notes, “Our business has enjoyed much success over the years. We have grown to become the leading truck and trailer dealership in the West. I truly believe that it is our responsibility to give back to our community. In this case, being able to support a program that provides aid to the homeless in our community is a worthy cause.”
These trucks will serve multiple locations across the region, in service to those in need. Oregon Harbor of Hope projects 8,000 showers and 4,700 finished loads of laundry in the program’s first full year of operation.
