Meals for 18 Wheels bringing Thanksgiving to truckers on the road

Truck drivers who won’t make it home for Thanksgiving this year may still have a chance to get a hot meal courtesy of Meals for 18 Wheels.

The group each year coordinates a team of volunteers to deliver Thanksgiving meals to truckers who can’t make it home. This year, the group will create a post on its Facebook page about the event, and drivers can comment with their location and how long they plan to be there. Meal deliveries will be made on Thursday and Friday.

Meals for 18 Wheels will then check its volunteer list to see if there is someone available in the area to bring the driver a meal and get the volunteer and driver in touch with each other to coordinate delivery.
