Shrewsbury, MA (December 2019) —Advantage Truck Group (ATG), the largest Daimler Trucks North America dealer network in New England, is leading its annual Haulin’ 4 Hunger volunteer event to help combat hunger, an initiative launched in 2012 that has now provided nearly 16,000 fresh meals to Central Massachusetts residents who lack consistent access to enough food.

In Massachusetts, 1 in 11 people struggle with hunger. Through Haulin’ 4 Hunger, ATG is bringing together a team of employees and business sponsors (many of whom are owner-operator companies) to lead the delivery of nearly 3,000 fresh meals to six food pantry organizations.

Rather than gifting customers with a holiday basket, we decided to create a program – with the support of our customers – to give their gift to others,” said Kevin G. Holmes, President and CEO of ATG. “This simple idea has resulted in seven years of giving, and with the help of our customers, employees and sponsors we have been able to expand our reach and increase the number of fresh meals we provide to those in need.”
