Annual Truckers for Troops telethon begins Veterans Day

The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association celebrates their 13th annual Truckers for Troops fundraiser which raises funds to send care packages to service personnel in combat zones. They also raise funds to help Veteran organizations that help provide housing for wounded, disabled, or homeless service members. The first campaign in 2007 raised a total $42,000, eight times over their modest goal of $5,000. Since then, OOIDA has generated almost $550,000 to send packages to our troops overseas.
