GULFPORT, Miss., Dec. 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 2013 holiday season is here, and American Truck Showrooms ( is pleased to be an Adopt-A-Family sponsor.

The Adopt-A-Family (AAF) program matches impoverished families with individual or group sponsors to provide for their tangible needs at Christmas. Without the benefit of an adoption, these families would be looking forward to a very grim holiday. Being adopted is designed to be a once or, on very rare occasions, twice in a lifetime event for recipient families.

This year, ATS employees will provide gifts to the sponsored family which consists of a single mother and six children ranging from ages 12 years old to 2 years old.

The children's wish lists are just like any other child's. Items on the list range from the basic necessities like clothes and shoes to the usual kid items like toys and games.

We are excited to be a part of such a meaningful cause and to help make these children's wishes come true.

American Truck Showrooms ( is the largest used truck dealer in the South and with its National Truck Funding affiliate, operates over 500 trucks in its "Rent to Buy" fleet of Volvos, Kenworths, Peterbilts, and Freightliners. CEO Louis Normand Jr. believes it to be a responsibility of business to help give back to the community.
