Cobra Electronics Sponsors ‘Fueling Our Heroes’ During COVID-19 Crisis
Automotive, mobile and CE products manufacturer Cobra Electronics is sponsoring the “Fueling Our Heroes” tour orchestrated by online trucking authority CDLLife to provide fresh meals to truck drivers who are investing long hours crisscrossing the country to deliver supplies during the COVID-19 crisis. The tour helps to alleviate issues drivers are facing due to restaurant closures and shortened hours along their routes in the course of their trips.
Over the course of six days, the first leg of the Fueling Our Heroes tour will visit eight states and make 15 stops at highway rest areas from Missouri to Pennsylvania to distribute fresh meals to the nation’s truck drivers.
“We are so thankful to the dedicated community of truck drivers who continue to log many hours and miles in order to deliver essential goods to our stores, homes and hospitals during these uncertain times,” said Gail Babitt, CEO of Cobra parent Cedar Electronics. “For years we have been helping drivers safely get from point A to point B and today we are pleased to have this opportunity to support the Fueling Our Heroes tour and continue to help improve the driving experience.” Cobra Electronics has equipped truck drivers for decades with professional Cobra CD radios for communications on their journey as well as with Cobra Power Inverters for reliable on-board power for drivers to operate travel gear like medical appliances, refrigerators and microwave ovens – especially helpful during these times when restaurants and motels may be unavailable.
Said Sadie Church, CDLLife: “This tour is a big thank you to the truck drivers out there who are delivering our groceries and essential medical supplies. We hope the public joins in to help the cause and allow us to add more cities to future trips, so we can show our gratitude to truck drivers from coast to coast.”
The current tour started Tuesday, May 5 and runs through Sunday, May 10; stops include St. Louis (Mo.), Bloomington (Ill.), Joliet (Ill.), Indianapolis (Ind.), Dayton (Ohio), Columbus (Ohio), Washington (Pa.), Zanesville (Ohio), Cincinnati (Ohio), Louisville (Ky.), Evansville (Ky.), St. Louis (Ill.), Kingdom City (Mo.) and Concordia (Mo.).
