Freight brokerage firm Total Quality Logistics (TQL) is launching a new program called Moves That Matter.
Moves That Matter is for all TQL employees, customers, and carriers who have had the honor of helping a recognized 501(c) (3) non-profit organization transport an important load of freight. Tell TQL about the move, and each month the company will choose at least one of the non-profits involved in the story to receive a minimum $1,000 donation.
TQL’s recent experience arranging for the pick-up and delivery of Jessie’s playground sparked the program’s creation. Jessie Lewis was one of the victims of the 2012 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Since that tragedy occurred, the Where Angels Play Foundation: The Sandy Ground Project, has been building playgrounds in honor of each of the 26 victims.
“There are so many people working for the greater good in our communities,” said Kerry Byrne, executive vice-president of TQL. “This is our way to thank all of these people and to encourage everyone who works in the transportation industry. The routine events of our job may not be well-known in popular culture, but we’re grateful for the opportunity to affect positive change.”
