Where did the name "Truck of Love" come from?

In 1967, Gordon Stewart from Our Lady of the Rosary Parish in Fremont drove a truck full of clothes and toys to Fr. Elias Galvez OFM, stationed in the Arizona desert serving the native American population. Gordon's 13 year old daughter, Leslie, named the project "Truck of Love".

What does the specialized cross in the logo represent?

The "people" in the cross represent a family or community surrounding the cross. As a primarily Christian community, we find our center point in our faith.

Has there been any press coverage of the Truck of Love?

Yes, quite a bit. There have been a number of TV news stories in the San Francisco Bay Area, and dozens of newspaper stories in all the local northern California papers. We are unable to put links here since the Los Altos (CA) Town Crier links are no longer valid.
