WESTLAKE, Ohio (Sept. 8, 2015) — TravelCenters of America L.L.C. is hosting driver appreciation events at some of its locations during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, which will takes place Sept. 13-19.
TravelCenters said National Truck Driver Appreciation Week salutes and recognizes professional truck drivers “for the difficult and demanding job they do so well, each and every day.” Many of the company's TA and Petro Stopping Centers truck stop locations will have special events through Oct. 2.
Each location will be handing out driver appreciation giveaways, and the chain's UltraONE members will earn Double Points on fuel purchases by swiping their UltraONE card at TA and Petro sites on Monday, Sept. 14, along with an array of goodies, games and music at many of the sites.
“Millions of professional drivers deliver our goods across America safely, securely and on time every day,” said Tom O'Brien, TravelCenters president and CEO. “Not only are they handling one of our economy's most demanding and important jobs, but they are also helping keep our highways safe. It's important we take the time to honor these hard working and committed individuals for not only their dedication, but for continually moving America forward.”
The chain also will host health fairs that will include healthcare professionals conducting blood-pressure screenings and
