NDMCA Hosts Truck Driver Appreciation to Thank Drivers Delivering Americas Goods During COVID19
Fargo, ND – The North Dakota Motor Carriers Association (NDMCA), in partnership with the North Dakota Highway Patrol, North Dakota Department of Transportation, Fargo/Moorhead Transportation Club and several NDMCA member companies, will offer free boxed lunches at ND DOT Mapleton Scale, West bound on I94, Wednesday, April 1st. The first lunch will be handed out at 10:30am today.
NDMCA President Pat Severson said, “This is a great opportunity to be able to say thanks to all those drivers that are going above and beyond right now.” April 1st was considered because of the irony behind drivers being asked to stop at the weigh station to receive a free lunch instead of the typical mandatory reason they usually experience. “Store shelves don’t fill back up without our drivers working overtime to deliver the freight. So, really on behalf of all North Dakotans, we thought the least we could do was provide them lunch,” Severson said.
The event was organized and planned by two of the NDMCA’s members Mark Wolter, Midnite Express and Melissa Dixon, Dixon Insurance; whom also are Past Presidents of the Association.
The North Dakota Motor Carriers Association is a state trade association with the mission to promote highway safety, deliver services and provide representation for its members. Founded in 1934 the Association has over 250 members and provides safety and management training, public policy assistance, knowledge management, and subject matter expertise to industry members and the public at large.
