Mission Complete: Donate All Gas Monkey Energy Inventory to the Front Line!

Shelter in place wasn’t enough to keep the owner of Gas Monkey Garage, Richard Rawlings, from coming up with an idea to support our First Responders. The idea, donate all of his inventory, a warehouse full of Gas Monkey Energy Drink.

Donating Gas Monkey Energy To First Responders: Mission Complete!

We did it, mission complete. The crazy idea of donating ALL of our Gas Monkey Energy inventory to first responders has been achieved.It couldn't have happened without the amazing team of Barnhart Transportation, LLC, ShipSmith, Franco Porporino, and everyone that donated. While our mission is complete, the fight with COVID-19 is far from finished. Everyone stay safe out there, avoid social gatherings, and please wash your damn hands!

Utilizing social media or “interwebs” as Richard likes to say, he reached out asking for transporters willing to donate their time, trucks, drivers, and fuel to deliver to the front lines. Next, he spoke with both the Fort Worth Fire and Police Chief, along with other community leaders across the country, to arrange drop off points. Within a day, transport trucks were loaded and heading to 18 locations across the US.


Without help from Barnhart Transportation, ShipSmith, and TV producer extraordinaire Franco Porporino, this outlandish task could have never happened.


Along this journey, he was able to meet and help some incredible community heroes. Donating Gas Monkey Energy drink was the easy part, what these first responders do day in and day out tirelessly, that takes courage, strength, and nobility. Hats off to all first responders and medical personnel out there during these challenging times.


See the pictures below to see all the wonderful places that Richard and this extraordinary team were able to connect and reach out to.
