Truck Driver Appreciation – A Month Long Celebration

We understand that trucking can be a tough and demanding job, and drivers and their families make sacrifices to keep our country moving. Every September, we aim to give back to drivers and their loved ones through appreciation events and giveaways, not just during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, but all month long. 

This year, J.B. Hunt showed its gratitude by planning over 200 driver appreciation events and giveaways. Events included golfing, swimming, bowling, fishing, attending baseball games, visiting a county fair and enjoying rides at Six Flags, as well as a family-style picnic with carnival games, a bounce house, face painting and even a manager dunk tank!

Many drivers enjoyed gift cards, various prizes and J.B. Hunt gear – t-shirts, polos, duffle bags, lunch coolers, jackets and more. And of course, there was plenty of food to go around! Drivers enjoyed breakfasts, lunches and dinners catered in or cooked at their terminals. Others were taken to restaurants to fill up on delicious meals.
