October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Throughout the month, The Shippers Group is recognizing the importance of breast cancer awareness by helping to educate and bring awareness to the impacts of breast cancer, culminated by a "Pink Out!" day. During October's "Pink Out!", The Shippers Group associates are encouraged to wear their favorite pink attire from head to toe to show their support.
The Shippers Group would like to extend a warm congratulations to the class of 2021. It has been a difficult road, especially with the altered conditions this past year, but you have persevered, making it an even more impressive achievement! May this be another beginning to many more successful days ahead!
Last year, The Shippers Group held a Pet Contest for National Pet Day. In the midst of lockdowns and stay-at-home orders, it was a fun way to bring good cheer to our essential and hardworking team. Little did we know how much of a hit it would be, so we decided to bring it back this year and make it an annual contest for our associates!
In the fight to break hunger, food banks play a key role by securing billions of pounds of food each year and distributing it to millions of people in need. Unfortunately, the food insecurity dilemma has been worsened by COVID-19 this year, so the need to provide these families with relief has never been more pressing.
Each year, The Shippers Group holds its annual food drive to help provide much needed food to our local communities. Our wonderful and gracious associates went above and beyond this year and donated several hundred pounds of non-perishable items to their local food banks, with some sites even filling their car to the brim with donations!
