22 school classes receive Trucker Buddy grants


Trucker Buddy International and Trimble announced this week that 22 classes have been given $500 for school supplies and equipment needs as part of the School Supply Grant Program.

Schools are evaluated based on funding needs, as well as the level of creativity in how applicants would use the funds. The program is open to current Trucker Buddies and their classes.

“Trucker Buddy, with the funding from Trimble, is thrilled to offer these grants to these deserving schools,” said Alan Welborn, executive director of Trucker Buddy. “Many teachers and drivers donate not only their time but also their own funds to help their classrooms, so this is a great opportunity to help their community.”

Trucker Buddy International connects truck drivers with school classrooms, and the driver shares stories, photos and other information from the road.
