Erb Group is the latest Ontario fleet to sponsor NAL Insurance’s Essential Trailer, and is pulling it to terminals and retirement homes to thank essential workers.
The trailer was stationed at the company’s annual employee appreciation barbecue, and has visited terminals in Baden, Mississauga, and North Bay. It’s also scheduled to visit Erb terminals in Ottawa, Montreal, and Trenton.
Funds collected from sponsors go towards the purchase of meals and personal protective equipment kits for truck drivers. This week, Erb will visit retirement home Hastings Manor in Napanee, where Quinte West mayor Jim Harrison and fire hall employees will be on hand.
Visits are also scheduled for police and fire services in Belleville.
“Erb once again would like to thank the trucking industry for their crucial contribution and for continuing to keep the economy moving,” the company said in a release.
