It was announced at OOIDA headquarters on Tuesday that the 3rd annual Truckers for Troops Telethon will begin on Monday, Dec. 7 – Pearl Harbor Day. The weeklong telethon raises money to send care packages to U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Iraq.
In its first two years, truckers donated more than $96,000 to the cause. As always, during the telethon week, the Association will be offering OOIDA memberships for only $25. Ten percent of the money, plus a match from the Association, will go to pay for care packages.
