Towing company helps donate to Poverello House

Monday, January 31, 2011

A towing company that helped turn a recent big rig crash into something positive for Fresno's neediest families.

A truck hauling oranges overturned in the fog last Monday night on Highway 99 near 180 sending oranges everywhere.

After Caltrans cleaned up the mess, Action Towing hauled off the big rig which still contained thousands of pounds of perfectly good oranges.

But those oranges weren't sellable, so Action Towing donated them to the Poverello House.

A whopping 4,000 pounds went to the local non-profit.
