Trucker Buddy International, in partnership with Trimble, announced that 19 classrooms have received grants for $500 for school supplies and equipment needs as part of Trucker Buddy’s School Supply Grant Program.
The organization that partners truck drivers with grade-school classrooms to help teach children about the trucking industry and more started the grant program in 2014. Schools are evaluated based on funding needs, as well as how the funds will be used.
“Trucker Buddy, with the funding from Trimble, is thrilled to offer these grants to these deserving schools,” said Alan Welborn, executive director of Trucker Buddy. “Many teachers and drivers donate not only their time but also their own funds to help their classrooms, so this is a great opportunity to help their community.”
