Community Involvement

JMT Trucking has long placed importance on involvement in the community through ongoing charitable donations as well as participation in a variety of organizations.

Throughout the years, JMT Trucking has been good a corporate citizen in supporting the communities in which they live through hiring and spending money to help stimulate local economies. Below is a list of ways we are involved in our community.

  • We have donated hauling services to build the new Ronald McDonald House.
