Jubitz Will Celebrate Truck Drivers at Annual Driver Appreciation Day, With Adjustments due to Coronavirus Pandemic
August 24, 2020
On September 23, Jubitz Truck Stop and Travel Center will host a free event to celebrate the hard work of the truck drivers who transport more than 70 percent of America’s freight. This year, as the coronavirus pandemic has made a huge impact on our world, more people have become aware of the importance of truck drivers. This year’s event will be different than previous year’s events due to social distancing requirements but will still thank truck drivers for their essential roles.

When: Wednesday, September 23 9am-1pm

America’s truck drivers are among the essential workers who are keeping products moving to stores, hospitals and more during the coronavirus pandemic. Their hard work has been recognized through the #ThankATrucker hashtag and even at an event at the White House. It’s estimated that grocery stores would be empty within two or three days if truck drivers all stopped working.
Previous Driver Appreciation Days have included a barbecue, vendors, games and more. This year’s event will instead be an outdoor boxed lunch giveaway for anyone with a CDL from 9am-1pm or as supplies last. Truck drivers will receive swag bags full of prizes and have the chance to win gift cards that will be sent to them by mail. Every aspect of the event will prioritize safety and social distancing, and masks will be required.
