Meals for truckers

300 plates plates handed out at plaza

Sue Sells wanted to make sure truck drivers are fed.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, most eateries along a driver’s route are closed.

Sells, whose husband, Jerry, is a truck driver, decided she wanted to give a good meal to drivers at Creek Travel Plaza on April 24.

Sells said her team helped raise money and bought 300 plates from David’s Catfish House for the drivers.

Sells said nowadays drivers are having a hard time trying to find food on the road.

Sells said Rob and Sheilo Faircloth were a big help in the effort.

Additionally, the travel plaza donated 150 shirts to give away, she said.
