Freightliner Chassis Owners Club Makes Donation to Children’s Recovery Center

Gaffney, S.C. … The Freightliner Chassis Owners Club (FCOC) recently held a rally in Myrtle Beach, S.C., that helped raise money for the Children’s Recovery Center in that community. Mr. and Mrs. Bill Buck, FCOC members and Rally Masters for the event, presented a check in the amount of $2,000 to Carol Rahtec, Medical Director of the Center. The Children’s Recovery Center is a non-profit organization that provides services such as assessments for abused children and counseling for them and their families.

Held on March 26 at Lakewood Camping, the FCOC Myrtle Beach Rally had the largest attendance ever for an FCOC rally, with 225 coaches and 460 members present. FCOC organized a raffle to raise the donation money, using prizes donated by several companies. Rally attendees bought tickets and raised a total of $2,000, which they chose to donate to the Children’s Recovery Center at the recommendation of the Chaplain for Lakewood Camping.

“I’m glad for the opportunity to convey our thanks once again for the generous donation of the Freightliner Chassis Owners Club. It is the generous nature of people who lend their support that makes a profound difference in the lives of children in difficult circumstances,” said Shawn Rothberg of the Children’s Recovery Center.

Founded in 1994, FCOC has more than 6,000 members across the United States and Canada. The club was created to promote social, recreational and educational exchange activities and gives its members many attractive benefits. To join the club, one must be an FMCA member and own an RV built on a Freightliner Chassis. For more information about FCOC, visit
