On Thursday, September 16 from 11:00 am till 5:00 pm, Convoy Technologies will be teaming up with Flora & Lily’s Mexican Kitchen to offer free meals for commercial drivers at Gei-Corp, located at Markle Tire & Truck, 720 W. Logan St. in Markle, IN, 46770, just off Exit 286. (The event was originally to be located at the rest stop at MM325 on I-69). They will call the event “Tacos for Truckers 2,” after the first event like this the company held in April of 2020.
Truck drivers have been the unsung heroes of the coronavirus pandemic, risking their health and working longer hours to keep our stores and health care facilities stocked with essential goods and equipment. Since National Truck Driver Appreciation Week is celebrated from Sept. 12 to the 18th, Convoy Technologies felt this was the perfect time to show drivers some gratitude.
As Convoy Technologies’ President Ron Harker says, “These drivers didn’t stay home during the lockdowns like the rest of us. They kept getting up every day and hitting the road. That’s why we still had food on the shelves at the grocery stores. That’s why our doctors and nurses were getting the supplies they needed to take care of our friends and loved ones. And they’re still going full-speed today—and then some. We should all be grateful to them. We felt buying them lunch was the least we could do.”
Drivers will be able to choose among:
· 3 tacos
· 1 burrito
· 1 Mexican bowl
· 1 plate of nachos
· 1 quesadilla.
The food truck will be stocked to provide up to 400 meals throughout the day. And Convoy Technologies will also be offering drinks and care packages.
