FleetPride Donates $30,000 To St. Jude Children’s Hospital

FleetPride announced that its senior director of marketing, Victoria Roberts, recently presented a $30,000 donation to

 on behalf of the company, after successfully launching the company’s first-ever GivingTuesday campaign.

The funds donated will support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude: “Finding cures. Saving children.”

“I am incredibly proud to be a part of this great organization and delighted with how quickly our employees and customers rallied around our first GivingTuesday effort,” said Roberts.

FleetPride kicked off its 2021 GivingTuesday efforts on Nov. 30 by encouraging customers and employees to make a purchase through the new FleetPride.com, with a percentage of online sales from that day benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. 

St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Partnerships like this are fueling the $11.5 billion, six-year St. Jude strategic plan, which includes tripling its global investment to impact more of the 400,000 kids with cancer around the world each year.

Because of generous donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food, so they can focus on helping their child live.

“Working together to raise funds for this cause is something the entire team was honored to be a part of,” said Mike Duffy, CEO of FleetPride. “This time of year, we have so much to be thankful for. To give back as a team, with the support of our customers, is incredibly rewarding for us.”

      FleetPride announced that it has acquired the assets of Nationwide Truck Service of Louisville, Kentucky.
      Founded in 1989 and owned by Eric Adkins, Nationwide Truck Service offers a wide range of repair services from its 21-bay facility and mobile repair units in addition to 24/7 roadside support.
      The Service Center at 355 Farmington Ave. will team up with the existing FleetPride parts branch at 4670 Jennings Lane in Louisville, “creating a complete value proposition for customers,” according to FleetPride. Adkins and his son, Jake, will remain involved in the day-to-day operations.
      “This is an outstanding opportunity for our valued customers and our team,” said Adkins. “Our customers will appreciate the access to a nationwide network of parts and service, and our employees will have the ability to grow and advance in FleetPride’s new service organization.”
      “We are truly excited to welcome Eric and Jake Adkins and the entire Nationwide Truck Service team to the FleetPride family,” said Cory Anderson, general manager and vice president of service at FleetPride. “Over the past three decades, the Nationwide team has become one of the most trusted independent service providers, which customers have come to depend on, in Louisville.”
      “Growth through acquisitions remains a focus for our company,” said Mike Harris, senior vice president of sales and operations at FleetPride. “We believe our value proposition resonates with owners of parts and service companies who are seeking a succession plan, or a partner that can provide a long-term foundation for their employees and customers.
