Land Line Magazine: Truckers For Troops completes 10th annual campaign

OOIDA’s Trucker For Troops campaign wrapped up its 10th annual fundraiser on Monday, Nov. 14. While the final numbers are still being tallied, it’s safe to say that this year’s fundraising efforts will again help many U.S. troops serving overseas and back in the states.

Through the first nine years of the campaign, it has generated more than $505,000 for care packages and other supplies to help U.S. military personnel. With those funds, OOIDA has sent more than 3,000 large care packages and provided items to nearly 36,000 military personnel stationed in war zones. In 2015, the Association expanded the program’s mission to include supplying needed items to various medical care facilities for wounded or needy veterans back in the states.

The care packages weigh about 70 pounds each and include enough items to serve an entire unit. The packages can include anything from practical items like soap, toothpaste and snacks to fun items like playing cards, crossword puzzle books and games.

During the annual campaign, OOIDA new and renewal memberships are discounted to $35, which is a savings of $10 off the regular membership fee. Ten percent of the membership fees paid during the campaign week go toward the Truckers for Troops fund. OOIDA then matches those funds.

Even though the 2016 campaign has ended, individual tax-deductible donations for Truckers For Troops can be made all year by calling 800-444-5791.
