Today, September 9, marks the start of Driver Appreciation Week. While we acknowledge our drivers’ hard work year-round, this week allows us to say “thank you” even more than usual for their outstanding efforts and dedication to Dot. Each Dot distribution center (DC) shows appreciation for their drivers and their families in different ways, including gifts, cookouts, dinners, picnics, carnivals, and more.
