PeopleNet Renews Support For 2018 Grants

Trucker Buddy International is pleased to announce that PeopleNet has agreed to renew its sponsorship of the School Supply Program for 2018.


The program was a big success in 2017 with Trucker Buddy classrooms receiving grants totaling $14,500 to help teachers purchase supplies and equipment.

In January 2017, 29 classrooms were selected to each receive $500 in grants for supplies, equipment and educational materials. Teachers purchased tablets, books, paper and pencils, and one class combined proceeds to purchase a white projection board. Classrooms are selected based on need and items used to help their students excel. Both teachers and drivers can apply for the grants.

“PeopleNet is honored to be associated with and support the Trucker Buddy International Program,” said Brian McLaughlin, President of PeopleNet. “Not only does this initiative provide much needed classroom supplies to schools across the country but it also gives students an opportunity to learn more about the great men and women within the trucking industry.”

“Trucker Buddy and all our members are so grateful for the continued support from PeopleNet,” said Alan Welborn, Executive Director. “School funding for basic items like the ones needed by the classrooms is not available unless someone like PeopleNet steps in to help our teachers and schools.”
