The Maine Professional Drivers Association raised over $40,000 for Camp Sunshine, of Casco, and Camp POSTCARD, of Poland. The funds were raised during their annual Maine Trucking for Kids Convoy, held at the Hannaford Corporate Headquarters on Pleasant Hill Road in Scarborough, Maine on Sunday, September 18, 2022. Camp Sunshine, which caters to critically ill kids and their families will divide the funds with Camp POSTCARD, which caters to disadvantaged kids.
The event’s top fundraiser was Jack Roussel of PAF Transportation, who raised over $15,000 of the funds. Many local companies and drivers participated in the event which included an 83-truck convoy through Scarborough and South Portland around the Maine Mall, Payne Road, and Route 1 areas.
During the event, a touch-a-truck activity took place along with a truck show and a driving competition for the big rigs. A lot of the funds were also raised from the auction, prize raffles, and the huge barbeque. Special thanks go out to Hannaford for the use of the facility and the parking area for staging the convoy and other activities.
The event was hosted by the Maine Professional Drivers Association and the South Portland Lions Club, both of whom have been involved with this annual event for nearly 25 years.
We want to recognize our transport driver, George Colby, for participating in this year’s event and providing photos. Thank you, George!
