Thanksgiving commemorates a harvest festival celebrated by the Pilgrims in 1621 and it reminds us each year to give thanks for all we have in our lives.
At Landstar, we try to show our appreciation throughout the year, and give special thanks to our BCOs, other capacity providers, agents and customers for all they do. Knowing just how much owner-operators give up throughout the year to be out on the road and away from their families, the entire Landstar family goes the extra mile to show our appreciation throughout the holidays.
This year, Landstar is continuing an annual tradition by teaming up with TravelCenters of America and Petro Stopping Centers to offer Landstar BCOs complimentary meals on Thanksgiving Day. Details are available on LandstarOnline for BCOs.
Several Landstar agencies are also showing their support to Landstar BCOs by providing free meals. Every year the Crosson agency in Alabama offers BCOs in their area a free Thanksgiving lunch. This year’s lunch will be provided at 11:30 a.m. on November 25th. Anyone with questions can call Melinda at the Crosson agency 256-442-4266.
Landstar agency WAD, Without a Doubt Specialized Haulers in Fairfield, Ohio, not only provided delicious turkey meals to over 200 people this year, they’re also working to give back, with their annual donation to the Appalachian Doll Ministry. The WAD agency asked all who joined them for their annual turkey fry to bring in a toy for their donation to the ministry. The toys collected will be distributed to children in rural Tennessee in time for Christmas.
Throughout November several other agencies and Landstar corporate collected canned goods for families in need. We want to thank everyone for their contributions and wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving from the Landstar family!
