This is an incredibly difficult time for many families. While several industries have the capability to work from home, RV transporters have a bit of a different experience. Most are independent contractors who spend a lot of time on the road. It can be difficult to stay diligent and safe during this pandemic! However, even though times are tough, RV transporters all over are doing wonderful things to help their communities. Join us in celebrating RV transporters and the things they’re doing to make this world a better place!
RVs 4 MDs: Donating RVs to Healthcare Workers
What began as just a Facebook group has expanded to a nationwide group of good Samaritans. In the RVs 4 MDs group, people nationwide are offering up their RVs to healthcare workers. Many are looking for a place to self-quarantine as they fight the virus. Several people are even generous enough to offer to transport RVs to those in need. This is such an incredible show of kindness. It’s so exciting to see folks from the RV community reaching out to offer help in the best way they’re able!
You can join the Facebook group here if you are interested in offering your help to those on the front lines.
