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.
This month, many associates from The Shippers Group participated in "No Shave November," as well as the "Movember" movement.
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’s Pink Warriors came out on Saturday, October 26 at NorthPark Center in Dallas for a great cause. This year marks the 37th annual Susan G. Komen Dallas Race for the Cure. Because breast cancer impacts us all, TSG’s Pink Warriors met early at 6am and braved the season’s first chilly temperatures to help bring us one step closer to ending breast cancer forever.
