Share the Road Drivers Show Love for Truckers for Valentine’s Day

IMTA, Truckers Against Trafficking Join Healthy Snack Event at Love’s Travel Stop

Share the Road professional drivers, along with representatives of the Indiana Motor Truck Association and Truckers Against Trafficking handed out healthy snacks as part of a Valentine’s Day themed “We Love Truckers” event in Belleville, Ind.

“As important as it is to take care on the roads,” said Share the Road’s Don Conklin, a driver with YRC Freight, “it is equally important to take care of yourself. While that can be hard on the road, mixing in a nutritious snack can go a long way to keeping you healthy and fit.”

During the event, which took place at the Love’s Travel Stop in Belleville, Ind., off Exit 59 of Interstate 70, Share the Road drivers, along with IMTA staff and representatives of Truckers Against Trafficking distributed healthy snacks as well as mugs, hats, pens and pins, and because it was near the holiday – Hershey’s Kisses.

“Our industry is blessed with thousands of hard-working, dedicated professionals who drive our trucks and move our freight,” said Gary Langston, president of the Indiana Motor Truck Association. “If events like this one can show, even in just a small way, how much we appreciate what they do for our industry and our country, then we’re proud to be a part of them.”

“I’m incredibly proud to be a professional truck driver,” said Share the Road’s Bill Minor, a driver for Con-way Freight, “but I’m more proud to do things that let my fellow drivers know how much they are valued.”
