Truckload of Giving
Join SDTA and Rude Transportation in showing our support for Rick Hoogendoorn and his family with the 1st Annual Truckload of Giving!
Rick Hoogendoorn and his wife Julie have been huge supporters of the Sanford Children’s Hospital and the Children’s Home Society. Each year, Rick and Julie, along with five other couples, hold a Christmas Gala to collect gifts and donations for newborn to 18-year-old children.
Rick was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer and an unrelated kidney cancer. He began chemotherapy on Tuesday, October 31st. Rick is a fighter, and he is ready to take on this challenge with all the courage and determination he can muster.
In this challenging time, we are reminded of the power of love, prayer, hope, and unity. As part of the power of love, SDTA and Rude Transportation have been working on a way to show Rick Hoogendoorn just what he means to the trucking world.
Rick has long been a supporter of SDTA, serving on the board of directors and the executive committee, and is a past chairman. He has also served as South Dakota’s ATA chairman. Let’s show our support for Rick and fill this truck!
The goal of SDTA and Rude Transportation is to provide a TRUCKLOAD OF CARING, beginning with this year’s Christmas Gala. Rude Transportation has agreed to provide the truck, and the SDTA staff will gather donations from our members to FILL THIS TRUCK! If you’d like to participate, please send gifts or money for the staff to purchase the gifts to the SDTA Office by December 1st.
