Many forget, the life of a truck driver is not for the faint of heart. These extrodinary men and women sacrifice on a daily basis what many take for granted such as coming home to loved ones every night, a home cooked meal, your cozy bed at home (no.. we're not talking your cozy sleeper cab this time).
Check out these wonderful charities worth spreading the word about and consider donating to. These fantastic charies range from health & financial assistance, reconnecting a pets with owners, meals and more! I'm sure many have not considered these and its up to us to spread the word and always keep these fantastic charity options in mind!
We at Trucklenders USA feel all these charity programs deserve all the help and shout-outs they can get, so they may continue on to do their job and help a fellow trucker in need during hard times.
Keep your eyes open and on the road.
The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s Operation Safe Driver is this week. Police will be on high alert and on the lookout for unsafe driving behaviors by commercial motor vehicles and passenger vehicle drivers. In 2017, nearly 39,000 citations and warnings were issued to truck drivers during Operation Safe Driver Week. More than 84 percent of these violations were for state and local moving violations, according to the CVSA. Check out what enforcement officers will be on the lookout for. This is the perfect time for a self check on some driving behaviors we perhaps need to change. We at TruckLendersUSA want all Truck drivers on the road and safe. The best type of driver on the road, is a safe and alert driver.
We at Truck Lenders USA are excited to see thatmore UrgentCareTravel locations are opening up keeping drivers safe, healthy and on the road in Texas, Pennsylvania, and Arkansas. Three new locations are all located at Pilot Flying J travel centers. With nine clinics already up and running, it appears in 2018 the goal is to add an additional 7 alone! These clinics are more appreciated than we know when a driver is down and out or in need of services. Take note of these locations, and keep them handy when on the road.

This well known and exciting annual Make-A Wish Truck event started back in 1990 when a child requested to ride in an 18th wheeler. That year, more than 40 trucks and drivers turned out. This years theme is "26 Miles- 50 Wishes".
This simple wish from a sinlge child has paved the path for 100 of wishes for children since, with more trucks and drivers every year since.
Many of the drivers will have the opportunity of haning a local Wish Chile ride with them during the convoy. Drivers must raise $100 to participate.
Early Tues morning, a man was contemplating taking his life by jumping off the highway overpass on I-696.
13 heroic Michigan truckers stopped their vehicles and lined up under the bridge creating both a wall and a makeshift platform to shorten the fall if the man decided to jump.
Amazing teamwork from all prevented a life from being lost. We at TruckLenders USA take our hats off to these fine 13 trucks and their drivers. You are all an amazing symbol of heroic, teamwork, and pride.
