The Illinois Truck Enforcement Association is taking a pro-active role to market and publicize charity and benevolent fundraising events sponsored by member employers, co-workers, or associations. The economic climate of our nation has brought on a spirit of fraternal and cooperative sharing to address the financial needs of those less fortunate. Traditional fundraising events usually do not have the resources to launch cost-effective internet advertising without taking from the funds meant to help the ones in need. Please browse through the fundraising events listed below and see if you can help somewhere. If you are interested in having your event promoted on the ITEA website, please read our policy statement and contact us by clicking HERE.
The Illinois Truck Enforcement Association is proud to fully endorse and support the following two organizations:
Truckers Against Trafficking
The goal of Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) is to educate, equip, empower and mobilize members of the trucking and travel plaza industry to combat domestic sex trafficking by helping us put our wallet cards in the hands of every trucker in America; have our trucking-industry-specific training DVD made part of orientation for all truck stop and travel plaza employees, all students of private and public trucking driving schools, all truck drivers employed via major carriers or owner/operators; and have TAT posters posted in all truck stops, rest areas and truck carrier break rooms across the United States. And then, once equipped with both awareness of the problem and education, when human trafficking is suspected, please call the national hotline number of 1-888-373-7888.
