Continental Tire North America has become a Copper Sponsor of Trucker Buddy International, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping educate and mentor school-age children via a pen pal relationship between professional truck drivers and classroom grades 2-8. Trucker Buddy says it started as a way to supplement children’s education and make learning more fun, and now has turned into a valuable image campaign for the trucking industry.

“The Commercial Group of Continental Tire is proud to be a sponsor of Trucker Buddy International and their educational goals,” says Clif Armstrong, director of commercial OE sales and marketing for Charlotte, N.C.-based Continental Tire. “Trucker Buddy’s pen pal program makes learning fun for students, while enhancing their skills in writing, reading and geography, and provides them with a better understanding of the trucking industry.”
