Your problem lies in the missing possessive apostrophe: the "need for companionship" belongs to the "truck drivers." I would re-word the sentence so it's less clunky. There are also several spelling errors. Additionally, the truck drivers don't need somebody to give (supply) them needs; they need somebody to fulfill their needs.

 

"Truck drivers rely upon the rest of the population to fulfill their need for companionship."
