The Great American Trucking Show (GATS) is right around the corner, kicking into gear this upcoming Thursday, August 21st in Dallas, TX. GATS visitors will be able to explore the booths and meet hundreds of notable companies, drivers, contributors, supporters, and more in the truck driving industry. While being a part of the action, you could also help out a great cause!
Trucking Moves America Forward (TMAF) was launched about six months ago in March. For those of you who aren’t familiar, TMAF is a very helpful industry wide company that takes the initiative to inform policymakers, drivers, and the public about the multitude of rewarding benefits the truck driving industry has to offer. These internal education initiatives set in place by TMAF help to build the foundation of necessary aspects throughout the industry to help strengthen and increase the success of it as a whole.
The Trucking Moves America Forward movement will be promoting their “High-5 and Show Your Pride” campaign while at GATS and strongly encourage visitors to donate just $5!
Mike Card is the fundraising chairman for TMAF and hopes that enough people will donate while at GATS and help them reach their goal of raising $1 million dollars within it’s first year, showcasing the pride of those within the industry. Thus far, they are 70 percent of the way to reaching their goal!
Attendees of the Great American Trucking Show will be able to donate their $5 contributions at the Trucking Moves America Forward booth #8042. Visitors will also be able to donate at co-founding member ATA’s booth as well (Booth No. 14059). “High-5 and Show Your Pride” signage will be displayed throughout the convention center and those who made donations will receive special recognition at the show, on TMAF social media sites, and throughout its website.
Chairman of Trucking Moves America Forward and vice-president of Great West Casualty Co., Steve Ponder looks forward to connecting with new supporters of the campaign and striving to reach their goal while at the convention in Dallas.
