The Shippers Group Volunteers at Books For Africa for Nonprofit Day

Posted by Margaret Harvey on Aug 19, 2022

On August 17th, National Nonprofit Day recognizes the goals and positive impacts nonprofits have on communities and the world. Awareness, research, and aid are able to reach the people around the world who need it because of the work nonprofits do. Therefore, it is so important to support our nonprofits through various efforts such as volunteering, donating, and helping raise funds.

The Shippers Group recognizes this importance, which is why we created our Shippers Gives Back program – our commitment to give charitably through a variety of efforts that help the underprivileged and build relationships within our communities. In conjunction with our Give Back program and National Nonprofit Day, a few members of our team in Atlanta spent Wednesday morning sorting through donated books at Books For Africa. Their efforts not only helped to make sure these books reached Africa, but also reach the right demographics within their communities.
