Martin’s Famous Pastry Shoppe, Inc. Helps Make a Child’s Day

Martin’s Transportation Department was contacted by someone named Ben who sent the following message: “Hi I am Ben. I am going to work on Mack Pinnacle #145 & Tractor Trailer #52.” It turns out that Ben is a 14-yr-old autistic boy from Red Hill, PA with a fascination for Martin’s trucks.

Some employees thought it would be nice to send Ben a Winn-Ross model truck and some merchandise, which soon turned into a much larger idea. In communication with Ben’s mother, some of Martin’s employees decided to hand-deliver the model truck and some bread products in a company van and tractor-trailer.

Many of Ben’s family and friends showed up to the event to see the excitement on his face as he got to experience first-hand “working” with Martin’s. Ben got a chance to drive around the block in the truck and to help load and deliver product to his family and friends.

Martin’s employees were humbled by the opportunity to brighten Ben’s day and to share in his special moment.
