Volvo Trucks salutes drivers with a holiday dinner on Dec. 24

| 12/12/2008

Plenty of drivers end up on the road over the holidays, rather than being with their families.

Volvo Trucks North America is teaming up with Michelin and Flying J to salute these drivers, showing appreciation by providing truckers 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 U.S. and Canada between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Dec. 24. They will receive a free turkey buffet dinner and beverage simply by showing their commercial driver’s license.

“Truck drivers deserve our thanks,” said Scott Kress, Volvo Trucks senior vice president of 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.”
