We’re celebrating one of the most treasured times of the year as the Adopt-a-Class program deliveries are in full swing.
Adopt-a-Class is an annual program in which J.B. Hunt company drivers can nominate their child or grandchild’s elementary school classroom for a $500- $1,000 donation in school supplies. In their nomination, drivers must submit short essays explaining why their student’s classroom is most deserving. J.B. Hunt then selects the winning essays and works with the teachers to order their supplies. Supplies are giftwrapped, and the drivers who submitted the winning essays deliver the supplies to the school in their J.B. Hunt truck. In addition to the school supplies, students also enjoy a truck tour and a pizza party!
Beginning with five drivers in 2013, Adopt-a-Class has grown tremendously! There were approximately 300 nominations this year and 22 driver essays were chosen. By the end of this year’s Adopt-a-Class deliveries, we will have donated more than $63,000 in school supplies to 72 schools in 28 states.
Dedicated driver Jose won the opportunity to deliver to his daughter’s classroom in the Lake County school district. On the experience he says, “Thank you so much to everyone at J.B. Hunt who made this possible. My daughter and her classmates were so excited to see the truck and open their new school supplies. By far the best delivery I’ve ever made.”
Enjoy these photos from a few of the deliveries!
