Last year, the organization delivered $14,500 to 29 families during the Christmas season.

Since its founding in 2008, the group has distributed more than $105,000 and helped 183 trucking families ease the financial burdens associated with the holiday season.

The group said its board was viewing 2020 with concern even before the Covid-19 outbreak.

“According to numbers from Broughton Capital, close to 800 trucking companies went bankrupt in the first three quarters of 2019, leaving more than 3,000 drivers without jobs,” it said.
