The group gave the drivers a thank you gift which included a sandwich meal and a road atlas.

JOHN – “We’ve had people that have been great coming out to volunteer for this and we’ve had a steady stream of truck drivers, we’ve heard really good things from them. It really has been a great turn out and fortunate to have good weather for this as well.”
