Kenney’s New Turnpike Vehicle

In May of 2015, Kenney got their first new Transit Van, ready for service on the Florida Turnpike. The previous vehicle used on the Turnpike was a Spartan truck which was donated to charity last year. This new vehicle will get better mileage than previous vehicles, and transport more brochures and magazines to the Turnpike Service Plazas than ever before. It’s also easier to load and unload for the drivers than past trucks. If you see it on the road, be sure to say hello!

Thanks to Jimmy at Shadow Graphics for such a terrific job on the graphics! Click here to visit their website.

Kenney Donates Truck to Local Shelter

In November, Barbara retired one of Kenney’s vehicles and donated it to the Central Florida Community Breadbasket of Osceola County. The 2007 Ford E-350 Cutaway Van gave Kenney many miles, carrying brochures and magazines to the Turnpike plazas 6 days a week for 7 years.

Rev. H. James Kreider, President of Central Florida Community Breadbasket Inc, was happy to receive the donated vehicle. Their current truck was in need of repairs, so the donated truck was used immediately to deliver food to shelters in Osceola County.
