FOUNDATIONS FIGHTING FOR TRUCKERS
The Drive for Freedom Foundation is committed to elevating the image of truck drivers as professionals in their industry by enhancing the culture of their vital role in the world’s economy.
“Individual commitment to a group effort – that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.” –Vince Lombardi
We are friends and fans of trucking for a number of reasons:
- Trucks deliver a majority of America & Canada’s consumable merchandise;
- Truck drivers work hard to do their jobs and make a decent living; and,
- Those involved in the trucking industry share camaraderie second to none.
Our aim with the Drive for Freedom Foundation is to create a true unified spirit within the trucking industry. We strive to improve each others lives and work together to improve trucking on a myriad of levels from the truck stop to corporate dispatch.
The Drive for Freedom Foundation offers solutions to problems. We strive to reach out to responsible drivers and have them work collectively to correct issues that trouble drivers and their families. We believe working with industry leaders helps create a sustainable environment that is progressive, respectful and profitable for everyone.
Join the proud professionals in the trucking industry and make a difference for the future of American & Canadian Commerce. Visit their Website here.
