Kenworth is auctioning off a special “Everyday Heroes” Kenworth T680 Next Generation in a bid to help educate and fund efforts to combat human trafficking.

Proceeds from the sale of the truck will go directly to Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT), a non-profit devoted to stopping human trafficking by educating, mobilising, and empowering the nation’s truck drivers and rest stop employees.

The project has received significant support from key sponsors Kenworth Truck Company, Inland Kenworth, and other leading companies and organisations in the trucking industry.

“I think this year’s auction for the Everyday Heroes truck will be our best yet,” said Don Blake, Inland Kenworth – Phoenix new truck sales manager.

“There’s been a lot of interest in the T680 Next Gen and we expect a good bidder turnout. The sale of the truck will likely result in TAT’s largest single donation of the year and help fund programs that make a difference.”
