C.H. Robinson, a global third party logistics (3PL) company, and its Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver offices contributed to a month-long, company-wide, employee-led giving campaign, the company said.
The campaign raised a total of USD 791,000 for a variety of local and national charities. In addition to the Robinson Cares campaign fundraising, employees accumulated more than 1,450 volunteer hours, helping their neighbors in need.
The Calgary team hosted a BBQ Sale for its customers and contract carriers, helping to raise money for the Calgary Emergency Women´s Shelter and Calgary Inter-Faith Food Bank. “Our employees were thrilled to participate in the campaign and give back to their community,” said Shammah Flaman, account coordinator at C.H. Robinson. “Though, the best part was seeing how our network, our customers, contract carriers, families and friends jumped in to help and support these vital organizations with us.”
C.H. Robinson provides a broad portfolio of logistics services, fresh produce sourcing and managed services for more than 113,000 customers and 71,000 contract carriers through our integrated network of 280 offices and more than 14,000 employees.
