Trucker Buddy International has received a large donation from Randall-Reilly Publishing in the form of office and operational support.


Randall-Reilly will provide support for telephone systems, computers and computer services, office administration, as well as many of the day-to-day expenses.

“Randall Reilly has graciously offered to allow us to operate our program from their offices in Tuscaloosa thus reducing our operational expenses and allowing more value to be reinvested into the program,” says Randy Schwartzenburg, executive director.

“We are excited to increase our level of support for Trucker Buddy. Having a strong image program aimed at our children sows the right seeds that will benefit our industry for years to come.” says Mike Reilly, chairman/CEO at Randall-Reilly.

Trucker Buddy, an independent, non-profit 501(c) (3) organization has helped educate schoolchildren and introduce educators to the trucking industry. The Trucker Buddy program operates through a pen pal relationship between professional truck drivers and children in grades 2-8 as supervised by their teachers.
