CFI’s annual Truckloads of Treasures holiday giving campaign raised $41,000 this year. With this year’s funds, the campaign’s lifetime contributions have now surpassed $1 million since the program’s inception in 1993.
All of the donations come from contributions made by CFI’s employees.
Greg Orr, president of CFI, commended his team for their continued generosity in a recent statement.
“Given the current economic climate, finding extra dollars for charity can be a tall task,” he said. “We live in extraordinary times, and I could not be prouder of our associates and their determination. With the geopolitical stress and demands of our day-to-day lives, it would be easy to pause on charity. Instead, our associates continued to think of others in need first and gave from the heart.”
Money raised by the campaign goes to charity nominated by CFI associates. The funds benefit underserved families, children, and elderly in the month of December on a local, national, and international level. The company says that the drive helps to “raise funds that will support the critical needs of local charities and community service organizations in cities where CFI employees live and work across the U.S., Canada and Mexico.”
“This has been an eventful year for CFI and the entire trucking industry with demands on our people and our resources like never before,” Orr said in a statement. “Yet even with these challenges, we brought out the same focus, perseverance, and grit to come together in support of our communities.”
