Event Recap: Driver Appreciation Day 2020

Jubitz’s annual Driver Appreciation Day took place this past Wednesday outside of the Cascade Grill. Truckers that came to the event with their Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) received a free lunch, swag bags and the same WCCE hospitality that has earned Jubitz their title as “World’s Classiest Truck Stop.”

Despite the challenges that COVID-19 (and a bit of rain) brought to the table, we put together what we hope was a memorable and sincere gesture for truck drivers. Large tents were propped up outdoors to allow for adequate social distancing.

Jubitz appreciates truck drivers 365 days a year

As a travel center that has grown exponentially over the years, our workforce and customers have also grown to be incredibly diverse. We got a chance to hear individual driver’s experiences on the road, and in return shared to them why they’re so important to our economy. Here are just some of the reasons that our employees appreciate truck drivers…

 

“I’ve worked with drivers over the last decade, and I’m reminded constantly of their humor, hard-work ethic, friendliness, mobile tech-savviness, and stories. They are truly the eyes and the heart of the open road.”

– William, IT Services Manager

 

“They are the underappreciated, under-recognized backbone of society and human culture to this day – not just in America, but globally. We rely on drivers with taking on the arduous task of ensuring companies keep moving and people continue to go about their daily lives unhindered. Since I was a little kid I always (and still do) look up to them as the backstage heroes; keeping the lights on. This is why I truly appreciate drivers.”

– CJ, Dispatch Manager

 

“Truck drivers bring us everything, everything that we eat, everything that keeps us entertained, everything has been on a truck at some point. Without truck drivers we wouldn’t have anything. Drivers are essential.”

– Gina, Driver Services Shift Leader

This year, as the coronavirus pandemic has made a huge impact on our world. This has helped people become aware of the importance of truck drivers. Our annual event will be different than previous years. Social distancing requirements will be implemented. We made sure the regulations won’t interfere with us thanking truck drivers for their essential roles.

America’s truck drivers are among the essential workers who are keeping products moving. Whether it’s delivering to stores, restaurants, hospitals or elsewhere, truck drivers have helped countless organizations throughout 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 be an outdoor boxed lunch giveaway for anyone with a CDL from 9am-1pm or until supplies run out. Truck drivers will receive swag bags full of prizes. They will also have the chance to win gift cards that will be sent out by mail. Every aspect of the event will prioritize safety and social distancing. Masks will be required.
