Hello my trucking family. I talked to The Prez yesterday and got approval for this because it hit my soul and we all can relate. There is a family here in our town ( we don’t know them) I just learned about today. Cory Olson is a O/O and in a matter of 2 weeks his wife and mother of their 3 children went from a covid positive test and was just placed on a ventilator and is now in a coma. I reached out to him yesterday to see what they need. He’s been home for 2 weeks and is the provider for his family. We all know wheels aren’t turning ya aren’t earning. I will post his email response to me. He said rent and groceries are his main need when I reached out to him I introduced myself and our Chi-town family. I’m hoping we can pull together to help this man and his family. We take care of our own and this is what we do. I couldn’t post on business page so this is where it lands. Lori Gallagher has added a donate button below these messages for those who an s[are to share. I will be in touch with Cory today see if anything else is needed.
Thank you everyone and much love to each of you. Feel free to message me if any questions.
 
Cory Olson’s Response email:
 
Hello,  
 
Thank you so much for your email.
I am a 0wner/0perator and as you know if wheels aren’t rolling no money flowing. The thing we need the most right now would be help with our rent, and some food. I’ve been off work now for 2 weeks and my wife was just put on the ventilator yesterday. So it could be awhile.

Thank everyone for me.

Cory Olson
