Volvo gives truck drivers free holiday dinner

Dec. 11, 2008
Some truck drivers end up on the road over the holidays rather than being with their families. Volvo Trucks North America salutes these drivers and will show its appreciation by providing them a free holiday dinner on Christmas Eve.

The trucking industry operates 24/7, 365 days a year, delivering to hospitals and other essential services. This means some drivers end up on the road over the holidays, rather than being with their families. Volvo Trucks North America salutes these drivers and will show its appreciation by providing them a free holiday dinner on Christmas Eve.

All a driver needs to do is to stop at any of 163 participating Flying J travel plazas in the United States and Canada between 5 and 7 p.m. December 24. Drivers will receive a free turkey buffet dinner and beverage simply by showing their commercial driver license.

"Truck drivers deserve our thanks," said Scott Kress, Volvo Trucks senior vice president–sales and marketing. "They really are unsung heroes, and they are also our customers. So in this holiday season, with economic hardship affecting so many, Volvo Trucks wants to recognize truckers working on Christmas Eve. With our partners Michelin and Flying J, we are giving away a hot turkey dinner to any driver on the job at a time when most of us are lucky enough to be with our families."
