In the spirit of Giving Tuesday, we want to highlight a recent volunteer event members of our corporate team participated in! These team members demonstrated our Shippers Gives Back commitment by lending a helping hand and giving back to our community through Catholic Charities Dallas (CCD).
On November 8th, several members of our corporate team spent the day outside of the warehouse and in the community doing some good with CCD. The day consisted of sorting and bagging produce to be distributed to families in need, and stocking the shelves and freezers for when the food bank reopens to the public. And – since logistics is our forte – we happily volunteered to also move and organize the empty pallets for storage! Needless to say, it was a fulfilling day and our team had a great time! We are eager to participate in more opportunities next month and spread more holiday cheer to others in our community!
Shippers Gives Back is The Shippers Group commitment to give charitably through a variety of efforts that help those in need and strengthen our communities. We support a variety of volunteer activities year-round and have partnered with Catholic Charities Dallas over the past few years for our annual canned food drive. The holidays are a time for community, family and togetherness, and opportunities such as this are a great reminder of how important and valuable a little giving back can be.
“Nothing else in all life is such a maker of joy and cheer as the privilege of doing good.”
– James Russell Miller
