Ferrellgas Dedicates Delivery Truck In Support of Kansas City Crime Stoppers
Since 2009, Ferrellgas has taken a number of its traditionally blue bobtail delivery vehicles and branded them with the logos and color schemes of local charities. Ferrellgas has two pink bobtails designed to raise awareness for the fight against breast cancer. There are red bobtails designed to raise funds for diabetes research and the fight against leukemia and lymphoma. Three camouflage vehicles help support various military causes.
The company’s newest vehicle, which supports Kansas City Crime Stoppers, is the first bobtail designed to help put bad guys behind bars. The new bobtail features a burnt orange, yellow, and black color scheme and includes the yellow Crime Stoppers badge logo. It was unveiled publicly on Monday, August 19 at the organization’s 19th Annual Bill Grigsby Memorial Golf Classic fundraiser.
A Kansas City non-profit community organization, Crime Stoppers enables citizens in the community to anonymously provide vital information that can assist law enforcement agencies in their fight against crime. Local residents can call, text, or provide tips via www.kccrimestoppers.com.
"Kansas City Crime Stoppers is thrilled with the relationship we've formed with Ferrellgas," says Dave Lamaster, president of the Crime Stoppers board. "This vehicle will serve as a rolling billboard for our great organization. It will remind citizens of Kansas City of the role they can help play in the fight against crime, and it will ultimately help make Kansas City a better, safer place to live.”
