As we enter into the season of Christmas and Thanksgiving many of us turn our attention to finding ways to give back to show appreciation for all that we have. If you are one of such individuals, here’s a great program that is uniquely geared to truckers.
Trucker Buddy International started in 1992. At its core, this program aims to connect professional truck drivers to children in grades K-8 for a pen pal relationship. Each week drivers share their travels with the class they are assigned to while in return, each student writes a letter to their driver once a month. This allows the students an opportunity to experience life beyond the classroom while putting their reading, writing, geography, mathematics, social studies and history skills to the test.
One look at the Trucker Buddy International website (www.truckerbuddy.org) and you will see that this is a program teachers love to involve their students in and one that students and drivers both find great value in being apart of. Are you ready to take part in this exciting program? Visit their website today, sign up for free and be matched with an available class.
Know of another outreach program allowing truckers an opportunity to give back? Please call our office at (800) 596-TRUCK (8782). We’d love to learn about it and potentially feature it in a future President’s Blog. At the Navigator Truck Insurance Agency we work hard to be accessible, helpful and result-oriented.
