2021 National Truck Driver Appreciation Week officially begins on September 12th, and runs until the 17th.
National Truck Driver Appreciation Week is a great opportunity for us to show how much we appreciate our drivers. You all spend a lot of time on the road, many of those days without family and friends. And we’re thankful for the work you do.
This is also a unique week to focus on all of the benefits that truck driving provides for our company and for our country! From food and fuel to consumer goods and medical supplies, everything that we rely on is delivered by truck, and ultimately by one of America’s 3.6 million truck drivers! So let’s show our gratitude and thank our truckers!
This year, we’ll begin our event for the drivers on Friday September 10th, and it will go until September 18th. During this time, we will have lots going on!
New for 2021, we’ve added games for all to participate in. We’ll have a golf game, and corn-hole. We’re asking drivers to pick an office/shop person to compete against in a quick game, which shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes, so please make sure you take the time to join them in a quick round. There are medals to be won for bragging rights!!
Also new this year, we will be handing out awards to drivers that have been here for 5 years or more. Once the list is complete, I will share with all of you so you are able to give them an extra Thank You for their years of service.
Drivers will need to check in with myself or the Safety Department for the following items; Select their 2021 Drivers Appreciation gift, Award if they have been here for 5 years or more, and gift card if they were one of the lucky raffle winners.
Finally, we will have a camera set up outside, along with some props. Please have fun with it as we’ll be adding these photos to social media during the event. So make sure you connect with us on our Facebook page.
