Truckers for Troops: There's still time to participate

| Friday, December 07, 2012

If for some reason you didn’t get the chance to call in during the weeklong telethon aired on “Land Line Now,” you can still participate in OOIDA’s Truckers for Troops campaign over the weekend.

The campaign runs Dec. 3-7, and during the week of the event OOIDA will offer new and renewal memberships for $25 – a savings of $20 off regular dues. Ten percent of member dues paid during the campaign will go toward care packages. OOIDA will then match those funds. The discounted memberships will continue through Jan. 31.

However, messages received by the start of business Monday will be returned by OOIDA Membership Department staff and will count toward the campaign’s total.

To participate in Truckers for Troops, you can call 800-444-5791, and after business hours, press 1 to leave a voicemail. Someone in membership will call you back when the offices reopen on Monday. All messages left on Saturday and Sunday and before the open of business on Monday will be included in the campaign’s total.

The campaign has already received a head start with a donation from Shell Rotella for $5,000.

The first five Truckers for Troops campaigns have raised more than $303,000 for care packages.
