Fleet Advantage Donates $10K During National Truck Driver Appreciation Week



Fleet Advantage, a provider of truck fleet business analytics, equipment financing and life cycle cost management, donated $10,000 through its Kids Around the Corner Foundation to truckersfinalmile.org as a way to show its appreciation during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week.

The truckersfinalmile.org mission aims to reunite North American truck drivers and their families in times of crisis, loss of life, debilitating injury, or serious illness. Through its Kids Around the Corner foundation, Fleet Advantage has been an official sponsor of the program and this recent contribution helps secure a total of 20 college education savings accounts through the program’s Sleigh Bells and Santa Christmas campaign. Last year, Fleet Advantage’s contribution helped secure 10 college education savings accounts.

“The loss of a parent is a grief-filled, traumatic experience and it permanently alters children of any age; nothing is ever the same again.” Robert Palm, founder and CEO of truckersfinalmile.org, said. “Here again is Fleet Advantage Kids Around the Corner Foundation doubling last year’s effort so that a minimum of 20 of these children will receive a 529 account. The words ‘thank you’ will never be enough for what this will mean to them as they grow.”

“Truck drivers are so important to our economy and the health of the overall nation, and inflation has brought about even more challenges for them to do their jobs each day,” Elizabeth Gomez, marketing manager for Fleet Advantage and chairperson for the Kids Around the Corner committee, said. “It’s important to keep goods flowing, but it’s just as important to offer care, assistance and the means for truck drivers’ families to remain close to one another. We are proud to donate to such a powerful organization whose mission serves these families when they need help the most.”
