The American Truck Historical Society, Smoky Mountain Chapter, donated $1,000 to Michael Dunn Center at the grand-opening celebration of the new Love’s Travel Stop in Lenoir City.
The donation resulted from the proceeds of the ATHS Southeast Regional Truck Show that took place on April 12-13 at Roane State Community College.
The ATHS Truck Show has donated proceeds from the show to Michael Dunn Center for the last four years.
Ted Bowers, chapter president for ATHS, voiced support for Michael Dunn Center’s mission while attending the check presentation.
“The work these people at Michael Dunn Center do to support people with disabilities is phenomenal,” said Bowers. “Once you see how they care for people with special needs in person, it melts your heart, and you want to help any way you can.”
Love’s Travel Stops has been a longtime contributor to the ATHS Southeast Regional Truck Show. Bowers said he believed the grand opening was a perfect opportunity to show support for both the contributor and the charity that help make the truck show a success.
“Without the help of all our sponsors, such as Love’s, we wouldn’t be able to help Michael Dunn Center make a difference in the lives of these special people,” added Bowers
Michael Dunn Center is a non-profit organization headquartered in Kingston that serves children and adults with disabilities and challenges statewide through an array of programs.
