Food is the greatest gift we can give to anyone facing hunger this holiday season. Each year, The Shippers Group holds its annual food drive to help provide much needed food to our local communities.
A few months ago, we shared how The Shippers Group teamed up with Good360 and the American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN) in support of relief efforts for those impact by Hurricane Dorian. The Bahamas continue to recover from this devastating hurricane, and it leaves us humbled and grateful to be in a position to offer in-kind support through donations of warehouse space, labor and equipment necessary to receive, store and ship goods.
Recently, the awesome folks at ALAN gave us a shout-out for agreeing to provide the much-needed warehousing for cleaning materials that are being used to help with Hurricane Dorian relief efforts in the Bahamas. Our very first core value tells us that helping others in need is the right thing to do. Integrity drives us every day, and we are thankful to be a position to help during these times.
The Shippers Group is once again teamed up with Good360 and the American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN) this time in support of relief efforts for those impact by Hurricane Dorian. When the most intense tropical cyclone on record struck the Bahamas in early September, more than 70,000 people where left homeless after the worst natural disaster in the country’s history. The Shippers Group has provided in-kind support through donations of warehouse space, labor and equipment necessary to receive, store and ship goods.
Corporate associates at The Shippers Group expressed their gratitude for the recent opportunity to give back to the community. Serving at the North Texas Food Bank in Plano, associates formed an assembly line, and worked together as a team to pack 9,312 meals for local seniors served by NTFB. Through the food bank's Commodity Supplemental Feeding Program, thousands of seniors who struggle with food insecurity are served each month. Many of those seniors living on fixed incomes are faced with the challenge of choosing between nutritious food, or paying for their medication or utilities. Each food box contains approximately 28 pounds of shelf-stable staples, and is distributed monthly.
