TORONTO, Ont. — Any driver can become attached to a truck, but there’s something special about driving equipment that promotes a charity. A growing number of fleets use vehicle graphics to help pull for a cause.
MISSISSAUGA, Ont. – Maxine Shantz says all it took was one year of volunteering with the Special Olympics Convoy and she was hooked.
The Home Hardware employee took on tasks with the GTA branch of the project six years ago and has been more involved every year since. Including spending a day in the charity’s Truck World booth recruiting drivers, selling raffle tickets to raise money for the cause, and raising awareness.
Shantz says the booth at the biennial convention brings good exposure to the cause, forming a sense of community for drivers around the event and shines a light on the good things drivers do in a climate where they are often portrayed in the media as the bad guys after incidents on the road.
WHITBY, Ont. – A pair of trailers hauled by Total Transportation will soon be showing support for Wounded Warriors Canada, and sharing the all-important message of #InThisTogether.
Representatives of the charity — which supports ill and injured members of the Canadian Armed Forces, veterans, and first responders — gathered on Friday with members of those very groups to watch the first of the trailers roll through the bay doors at Sign Design.
