Rapid City mother and daughter assembling care packages for truckers

RAPID CITY, S.D. — With food and supplies being in short stock amid the coronavirus, not many people may think about the truckers who deliver.

A Rapid City mother and her daughter got an idea to give back after a family friend, who drives trucks, showed concern.

Some truck stops closed inside, but fast food establishments and many businesses have heightened restrictions put in place for vehicles that large. So to help them get by, Ariel Napier and her mom put together care packages with water, jerky, granola bars and more.

“And their delivering our toilet paper and our basic necessities and you know so this is just a way that we can thank them for what they are doing,” Ariel said. “They are kind of our life line. We’ve had several donations, which has increased the number of boxes so far that we have already been able to put together,” Ariel Napier said.

The goal is to put together 25 boxed care packages for truckers and to hand them out at the Loves Travel Stop in Box Elder.

To donate, you can call (605-545-3032).
