With the labor shortage crisis this year, a lot of businesses have been experiencing staffing and attendance issues. Especially during the holiday season—not to mention an ongoing pandemic—it can be hard to juggle work and kids being out of school.

That is why we chose to promote and show our appreciation to our dedicated associates who show up to work each day to service our customer.

During the month of November, The Shippers Group held a raffle for two TVs and a wide range of gift cards.
