The Truckers for Troops Telethon this year broke yet another record. The Association gathered more addresses of service men and women this year than any previous year so far, enabling us to serve far more troops this year. The last of those packages were sent in April.
The big record, of course, was in money raised to send 605 care packages to 7,260 troops in war zones. Contributions totaled $61,973, compared with $54,567 in 2008 and $42,083 in 2007. The total raised by the telethon in its first three years amounts to $158,623.
