Aug 08, 2023

The American Trucking Associations’ Trucking Cares Foundation is proud to announce that Barry and Suzanne Pottle have committed to become the 18th members of the TCF Founders Club.

“The trucking industry has been so good to my family over many decades. When it came time for my wife, Suzanne, and I to be able to give back, the Trucking Cares Foundation was the answer,” said Barry Pottle, former ATA chairman and owner of Pottle’s Transportation and current Vice President, Government Affairs at Bison Transport USA. “This Foundation brings a light to the entire trucking industry. As a past chairman of ATA, being a Founders Club Member has increased my ability to connect on a deeper level with the industry I love most.”

The Founders Club is a special class of donors comprised of individuals and corporations that have committed to a $100,000 contribution over a 10-year period. Founders Club members will receive special recognition across Trucking Cares Foundation programs for their early and generous commitments to making our mission a reality.

“We appreciate the tremendous support of Barry and Suzanne, and all our Founders Club Members. They are setting the Foundation up for sustained success in its mission to support countless important causes in the U.S. and around the world,” said TCF President John Lynch. “These donations allow us to respond quickly when needs arise, as well as make ongoing contributions to important causes throughout the year.”

The Trucking Cares Foundation is the trucking industry’s charitable arm, focusing on several core areas, including: humanitarian and disaster relief; eradicating human trafficking; leadership development; strengthening the industry’s relationships with law enforcement, the military and veterans’ organizations; safety and research opportunities.
