Arrow Truck Sales of Kansas City, Mo., has announced that it will donate a 2014 Volvo VNL 670 to the Women In Trucking Association for its 2018 Truck Giveaway.

Ellen Voie, president and CEO of WIT will give away the vehicle on March 24, 2018 during the 9th annual “Salute to Women Behind the Wheel,” at the Mid-America Trucking Show at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Ky.

“We are thrilled to be able to give a truck to one of our members at our annual Salute to Women Behind the Wheel,” said Voie. “I am especially looking forward to handing over the keys to the Volvo to allow one deserving member the chance of a lifetime, thanks to Arrow Truck Sales and their very generous donation.”

Arrow Truck Sales is a source of used heavy- and medium-duty trucks with locations across the U.S. and Canada. It is a Gold Partner supporter of the WIT Association.

“Arrow has long been supportive of equality and diversity efforts within the trucking industry," said Jim Stevenson, Arrow’s director of national accounts and WIT board member. "We look at this as an opportunity to help a WIT member by providing a 2014 Volvo VNL 670 to support his or her success as an owner-operator.”

The Women In Trucking Association is a nonprofit organization aimed at encouraging the employment of women in the trucking industry, promoting their accomplishments, and minimizing obstacles to women in the industry.

Applications for the 2018 Truck Giveaway are open until Nov. 15, 2017. The contestant must be at least 23 years old and hold a valid commercial driver’s license and be a member in good standing of WIT before September 30, 2017.

To qualify, a driver must complete an application form to verify eligibility and write a short essay on why it is important to attract more women into the trucking industry. Examples of ways the driver has encouraged women to consider a career in trucking will show her or his support for the mission of Women In Trucking Association.
