Coca-Cola teams up with The Salvation Army on Christmas Truck Tour

Coca-Cola Australia has launched the ‘It Feels Good to Give’ campaign with The Salvation Army.

The campaign will be headlined by the iconic Coca-Cola Christmas Truck, which comes to Australia for the first time in a campaign developed by UM, Ogilvy, Pulse Communications, Maverick and Geometry Global.

The truck will deliver ‘surprise and delight’ moments in regional destinations around the country, such as Tamworth, Townsville and Mt Isa. The brand will gift each region items for their town, from lighting and sound equipment for a community music hall to a reusable outdoor cinema in remote far north Queensland. The truck will finish the tour at Woolworths Carols in the Domain in Sydney.

The Salvation Army was involved in determining which regions would be visited by the Truck and the gifts most needed for each region.
