Over the next month, CTA and Trucks for Change will highlight on social media all the good deeds by our industry during the Holidays. Some of these include annual carrier traditions, while others are standalone acts by companies and their employees like organizing a toy drives or volunteering to collect or sort food at a local food bank.
We want you to post your charitable holiday events on your social media platforms by tagging @cantruck and including the popular hashtags #ThankaTrucker and #TruckersPayitforward. We have developed a toolkit (click here: Holiday Tool Kit_public) to assist carriers with participation in this campaign, advice to posting to social media and provide suggestions/guidance/contacts for activities they could get involved with.
Polaris is proud to be supporting our community! Thank you Firoza, Kevin & Richard for your help with the delivery of toys to the Toronto Fire Station. We appreciate the great team work to make this happen! #TorontoFireStation432 #GivingBack #TruckersPayItForward #CrossBorderPros pic.twitter.com/AbefJVDAbf
