Briefly: Truckers Christmas Group opens nominations of families in need

A charity that aids truckers’ families in need is now accepting applications for this year’s round of aid.

The Truckers Christmas Group announced it will accept nominations through Dec. 17.

Now in its 15th year, the group has raised some $150,000 and aided 244 trucker families in the U.S. and Canada who are experiencing financial difficulties.

The group is also raising funds for this year’s aid to families. Part of these efforts is an online store where the group sells products donated by businesses.
