Extraordinary Support

The company doesn’t think its efforts were anything special, Ervin says. It hasn’t sought publicity. In fact, Collins says, “There’s a lot more of this kind of thing going on out there than people realize. The last thing on our mind was to go hunting publicity.”
“Truckers are weird sometimes,” Collins says. “They’ll argue and fight, but when someone needs help, they all pitch in.”

Ervin has been looking to spread the story himself. “I just want other truckers to know that there are still people out here that care about us,” he says. “People that think you’re not just a number, that you do a good job. In this day and world, this kind of help is so uplifting.”
