Felling Trailers is preparing to conduct its eighth annual online auction of an FT-3 drop deck utility trailer to benefit a non-profit organization. The Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) is the 2020 recipient.

Felling Trailers’ goal is to generate awareness about lymphoma and the research funding and resources that LRF has to offer those individuals and families it affects. With that in mind, Felling Trailers manufactured and painted one of its most popular trailers with the signature green color for Burkitt's lymphoma and branded it with the LRF emblem. The online auction for the trailer will run for seven days: Sept. 9-15. Several of Felling Trailers' suppliers have supported LRF through sponsorship of the trailer build, from lighting to tires to paint. The 2020 Trailer for a Cause sponsors are Trans-Texas, PPG Industries, Dexter, Sealco, Peterson, Industrial Wood, and Demco. The entirety of the winning bid will benefit LRF.

September is Lymphoma & Blood Cancer Awareness Month, and Felling Trailers wants to do its part to help shine a light on lymphoma. In the days leading up to the auction, Felling Trailers will share stories of those touched by the many different forms of lymphoma to help educate and drive awareness. The company will also be participating in LRF’s Light it Red for Lymphoma by lighting the Trailer for a Cause display red during September along with other company activities throughout the month. Light it Red for Lymphoma is LRF’s grassroots initiative that brings lymphoma awareness to local, national, and global conversations by lighting displays, buildings, bridges, and homes red.

Felling Trailers selected the signature green color for Burkitt’s lymphoma to show support and honor a team member who was recently diagnosed with Burkitt’s lymphoma. He has been making positive strides throughout his treatment journey, all while his family, friends, and co-workers have cheered him on. He is their Warrior, and all of those who support him, pray for him, and stand beside him are Team Warrior. Along with the signature green color, the trailer will also bear the Team Warrior name. 

The Trailer for a Cause auction will begin at noon Wednesday, Sept. 9, and run for seven days, ending at noon, Tuesday, Sept. 15, which is World Lymphoma Awareness Day. The online auction can be viewed at https://www.felling.com/our-company/trailer-for-a-cause/. Arrangements to be made for pick up at Felling Trailers’ manufacturing facility or delivery (freight is extra).
