Red International ProStar helps deliver Christmas cheer to communities across Australia

A brightly decorated and shiny red International ProStar is giving Santa a helping hand this year, by delivering gifts to communities near and far around Australia, as part of the Coca-Cola and The Salvation Army’s Christmas Truck Tour for 2018.

Launched in Sydney this week, the ‘It Feels Good to Give’ tour, a collaborative effort between The Salvation Army and Coca-Cola Australia, will see the ProStar travel over 10,000 kilometres in the coming weeks. The tour stops in Perth, Adelaide, Broken Hill, Melbourne and Hobart to host community Christmas events, before returning to Sydney in time for Woolworths Carols in the Domain on December 22.

The ProStar sleeper cab prime mover in 550hp and ‘Ultrashift Plus’ AMT configuration, will tow a single trailer holding gifts for distribution at each event as part of one of Australia’s largest ‘Secret Santas’.

Guests can register to participate in the Secret Santa, with all gifts provided by Coca-Cola. Guests simply select a bauble from the Christmas archways on entry to the event, which contains a gift tag of a recipient at the next location. They then choose a gift for them from the present station and handwrite a message on an accompanying Christmas card – and the truck will deliver it to the recipient at the next stop.

In return, the gift giver receives a gift, wrapped by someone from the previous stop. Guests can then share in a festive meal and refreshing Coca-Cola No Sugar, and enjoy entertainment from The Salvation Army.
