Truck Driver Appreciation Day is Coming September 12
August 22, 2018
On September 12, Jubitz will host a free barbecue bash to celebrate the hard work of truck drivers from 10 am to 4 pm. The event falls during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week. This is a week set aside to appreciate the people most responsible for delivering America’s essential goods. In previous years, as many as 400 truck drivers have attended.
During Jubitz Driver Appreciation Day, anyone with a CDL can enjoy a free barbecue lunch. We encourage guests to visit vendors and win big prizes too. This year we have GPS units, flat screen TVs and more.
The nation’s 3.5 million truck drivers have an impact on the lives of all Americans. These folks deliver everything from the food that feeds us to the gasoline that powers us. Trucks move roughly 70 percent of America’s total freight tonnage. In addition to being vital to the U.S. economy, truck drivers are also valuable members of their communities who help keep our highways safe.
Thank you to our many sponsors that make Driver Appreciation Day possible!
