Penske Truck Rental Will "Lend a Hand" to NBC Today Show

Penske Truck Rental is teaming up again with NBC's “Today" for its annual Lend a Hand charity road trip.

“Today" co-host Al Roker and a parade of Penske rental trucks filled with donations from major corporations will surprise a different charity each morning during the show's live broadcasts June 13-17.

For the past six years, Penske has donated its rental moving trucks to Lend a Hand, a weeklong road trip during which Roker delivers much-needed items to small U.S. charities.

“We're happy to respond once again to the 'Today' show's request for assistance with Lend a Hand," said Don Mikes, Penske's vice president of rental. “We take pride in giving back to the community."

Al Roker and his yellow Penske truck will visit the following cities:

  • Anchorage, Alaska – June 13
  • Las Vegas – June 14
  • Houston – June 15
  • Birmingham, Ala. – June 16
  • Charleston, W.V. – June 17

Penske associates near these cities have been working diligently to aid the NBC production teams with securing rental trucks, drivers and storage facilities.
