8th Annual Tows 4 Tots A Success!

In case you missed it, here is a video to capturing our 8th annual Tows for Tots event. Video and Photo credit to one of our wonderful volunteers Michelle Carvalho.



This past weekend more than 105 tow truckers from Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland gathered at the Baring House Crisis Nursery to deliver Christmas gifts for the children and teens served by YSI. This was the 8th annual year that “Tri-State Area Tow 4 Tots” has collected and delivered gifts on behalf of YSI youth and their caretakers.

YSI Tows for Tots 2015-1

“Tow 4 Tots” is organized by Dave and Charles Norton of North Philadelphia-based Norton Tow Squad and their network of towers and friends. The Nortons began the holiday drive to thank YSI on behalf of their nephews, who were residents of YSI’s Baring House Group Home in the late 1980s. The Nortons have continued to support YSI through these efforts for the past 8 years and we’re proud to say this was the biggest event to date!
