CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

For the past few years, a Toyota Tundra has been prominently displayed at Great American Ball Park. The truck is perched in the outfield, approximately 500 feet from home plate beyond the center field fence.

If a Reds player hits the Tundra, or a sign located between the outfield ‘Power Stacks', the truck goes home with a lucky fan. But what if a lucky fan does not win the truck? Where does it go at the end of the season?

On Wednesday, the truck was delivered to Matthew 25: Ministries - a hometown organization that distributes food, clothing and humanitarian supplies to the needy and tragedy-stricken.

"It's really impactful to get this vehicle," says Tim Mettey on Matthew 25: Ministries. "It will really aid us in our work in disaster relief and throughout the community here. Always when you get a vehicle, it's pretty significant and all of us are so thrilled about it."

The organization was chosen by Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky Toyota Dealers for "use in their humanitarian aid and disaster relief work throughout the US and around the world."

This is the fourth year that the Tri-State Toyota dealers have donated a car to local charities.

    When the town of Gilmer is mentioned in relation to sports, the Buckeyes powerhouse football program immediately comes to mind. And that's fair considering they have won three state titles and racked up 13 double digit win seasons since 2000. But a small 1A school about nine miles away deserves some attention these days as well.
