Things not said out loud sometimes say the most, especially when it comes to helping others. Most people don’t realize it, but a long list of charity projects were developed and are funded by truck drivers. Sometimes, if you listen well enough, you might hear bits about those projects, in quiet, unusual ways. Truck drivers do make a big difference. Probably a bigger difference than you realize. When truckers pull together, almost anything can be accomplished. If you’ve been looking for a reason to join the trucking profession, here’s a good one to add to the list: One the best things about being a truck driver is knowing that you work in a field of professionals that care. Not only are truck drivers helping the general public, they are there for each other. The following are just a few of the projects available to truck drivers and family funded by truck drivers and family:
The mission of Trucker Charity is to assist those in the trucking industry in need. We will do this financially, and with education. Our life coach and mentoring programs work with those that need help one on one. We will raise money to help support people in the trucking industry who are in need and luck has passed them by. Including mechanics, truckers and their families and all jobs related to the trucking industry. www.truckercharity.org
Truckers United for Charity
Truckers United for Charities is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit all volunteer led organization. We are “Truckers and friends, helping others one mile at a time.” Throughout the year, we hold fundraisers at various truck shows. Typically that is done by selling food from a grill that we staff in the truck parking lot at the truck show. One of our latest projects was for Doernbecher Children Hospital Foundation (a hospital where Chance Rogers was treated. Chance Rogers had cancer and was a grandson of a fellow truck driver).
