Celebrating Driver Appreciation Week

Professional drivers keep America running, delivering goods we rely on every day. We are proud to celebrate our partners at Knight Transportation and Swift Transportation during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week (September 12-18).

Through its partnership with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, Knight Transportation and Swift Transportation drivers are changing kids’ health and changing the future.

In its first year of fundraising for CMN Hospitals, Knight-Swift Transportation raised $468,537 for children’s hospitals across the country. THANK YOU, drivers and terminal employees, for your generosity!

Here in Central PA, our friends at the Knight Terminal in Carlisle and the Swift Terminal in Jonestown have raised over $2,100 mainly through employee payroll deductions for Penn State Health Children’s Hospital since the partnership began. Knight-Swift even joined us virtually with many other National Partner representatives earlier in 2021 for CMN Hershey’s Virtual Miracle Maker Summit All-Partner Kick-Off.

Furthermore, Knight-Swift Transportation will take their support of CMN Hospitals to the next level next month by holding it’s first ever Truck-a-Thon all of October. Both driving and non-driving associates will have the opportunity to register to raise and make donations based on mileage driven by Knight and Swift drivers. Knight-Swift Transportation hopes to raise a combined $250,000 for CMN Hospitals through this brand new initiative.

Please join us in thanking these heroes of the road and #MiracleMakers for championing children’s health and better futures for us all!
