We recently came across a great charity we’d like to share with the uShip community. Since 1992, Trucker Buddy International has been matching classrooms with pen pals in the trucking industry.
Once a month, students in grades K-8 write letters to their drivers, building valuable reading and writing skills while enhancing their knowledge of math, social studies, history and the transport industry in general. Every week, truck drivers share news about their travels with the class.
If you’re a truck driver interested in participating in the program, or would like to donate to Trucker Buddy, visit them here.
It’s a fantastic opportunity for drivers to give back by interacting with the over one million students that participate in the program.
