HUFCOR would like to thank the community for the overwhelming support for the Houston Relief donation drive that we coordinated through the JJ Watt Foundation at Blaine’s Farm & Fleet on Sept. 1. The donations greatly exceeded our expectations, and we filled seven trailers! Special thanks to the numerous volunteers who worked so hard to unload vehicles, sort items and load trucks.

The donations of tractors, trailers, and above all, the dedicated drivers from HUFCOR, Rock Valley Trucking, Leslie Transport, Blaine’s Farm & Fleet, Mansur Trucking, and J&W Transfer made this possible. Thanks to radio stations 99.9 WJVL and 101.9 & 105.9 The HOG, and Channels 15 and 27 for the television coverage. The food and drink donations for the volunteers from local grocery stores and restaurants were greatly appreciated.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

DAVE ALWIN & SCOTT STAEDTER
