Thank a Trucker team to serve up free meals May 1 – Truck News


WOODSTOCK, Ont. – NAL Insurance says its
Thank a Trucker team will be set up outside the TA Petro truck stop in
Woodstock, Ont., May 1 from 11 a.m. till 2 p.m., providing truck drivers with
free meals.

Pizza, soft drinks and coffee will be
served up, and a cleaning station will be set up so truckers can access hand
sanitizer and Lysol wipes. Drivers will need to show their licence to receive a
free meal.

They’ll also be given a tip sheet, with information
on how to protect themselves from the Covid-19 virus while on the road.

“These drivers are heading out into the
front lines every day to make sure we have food on our tables, fuel in our
cars, and anything else we need, but it comes with a big risk and less than
ideal circumstances,” said Aaron Lindsay, vice-president of marketing for Thank
a Trucker.

Thank a Trucker, an initiative created by
NAL Insurance in London, Ont., is working to raise money to provide truck drivers
with personal protective equipment including hand sanitizer, masks, and gloves
as well as other essential items like food and drinks. Funds are raised through
merchandise sales on its website,
including t-shirts, hats, and face covers.
