Cary, NC — Bright Horizons hosted their annual Triangle Truck Day on November 15, 2014 to raise money for the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children. The interactive day provided “truckloads” of fun for families and taught children the importance of helping others.

950 People

The event, without a doubt, was a huge success. According to Bright Horizons, the school hosted more than 950 people during the three hour event.

10,000 Homeless Children. Each Month.

Proceeds from the event went entirely to the Bright Horizons Foundation, a nonprofit started by the school to support and create “bright” or warm, safe, and enriching spaces for children in homeless shelters and other agencies.

The organization helps more than 10,000 homeless children each month.

If you missed Truck Day, be sure to check out the event–and support the great cause–next year!
