Worldwide Equipment Sales, LLC’s “Tow Trucks for Tots” is a non-profit organization made up of the towing community, its suppliers and the volunteers who raise toys for children during the holiday season.

Tow Trucks for Tots has three main goals:

  1. To bring a much-needed toy to a deserving boy or girl.
  2. To further enhance the image of the towing industry.
  3. To Break Guinness Book of World Records record for the largest tow truck parade.

Worldwide Equipment Sales, LLC’s “Tow Trucks For Tots” currently holds the Guinness Book of World Records record for the largest tow truck parade.

Every second Sunday in November, towing companies throughout the Midwest converge to Rockdale, Ill., (Hollywood Casino) and line up for the world’s largest tow truck parade. The parade route is 42 miles long. It travels from Rockdale, Ill., to Toyota Park in Bridgeview, Ill. At Toyota Park towing companies unload their collected toys into semi-trucks to be distributed to needy children. All toy donations must be new and unwrapped.  Please no guns, swords, or stuffed animals.

Also at Toyota Park, the tow truck driver is given a free Tow Trucks For Tots T-Shirt and all are treated to lunch, a live band and the camaraderie of their fellow towers.

During the months before the parade towers are encouraged to collect toys for children ages 0-18 years old. They do this by putting drop boxes at their places of businesses. Some have parties and fundraisers to collect toys. All parties and fundraisers are posted on our website and are open to the towing community and public.

Make plans now to attend. For more information visit the Tow Trucks for Tots website at
