Truck drivers and others in the transportation industry have a unique understanding of just how important home is. Being on the road so often makes time spent at home even more precious. And that’s why we here at Omnitracs felt the need to contribute in a meaningful way to the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts in Houston.

With our corporate headquarters in Texas and with offices in Mexico City, we felt especially connected to Hurricane Harvey and the earthquake in Mexico City. We wanted to help our neighbors recover some sense of home as quickly as possible. To that end, we have banded together to provide as much help as we can.

For Hurricane Harvey, Omnitracs initiated a matching gift program through which every employee donation to the Red Cross and Salvation Army was matched by Omnitracs. Employee donations poured in, and our combined contributions — a total of $31,851 — will make a real difference for those suffering in the aftermath of Harvey.

In response to the earthquake in Mexico City, we have set up a special donation link for employees to donate whatever they can to the Mexican Red Cross – and Omnitracs will be donating $10,000 as a company, as well.

We would be remiss if we didn’t mention all the truck drivers who are making these relief efforts possible. Without their willingness to help, both with our deliveries and everyone else’s, none of this would be possible. We know first-hand at Omnitracs Eld just how generous truck drivers are, always eager to lend a hand. By working together, we can all make a difference and help our neighbors in need.

Our thoughts go out to everyone affected by all of the recent natural disasters, and we offer our sincere thanks to everyone who has donated to relief efforts.
