Cincinnati-based Total Quality Logistics raised $17,000 for the Yellow Ribbon Support Foundation.
From May 13-19, $1 for every load that TQL arranged was set aside for a donation to the foundation.
TQL presented the check to the foundation at the company’s headquarters during a Memorial Day event.
“This is an opportunity for us to thank all servicemen and women across the nation, especially those in our TQL family, for their sacrifices on behalf of our country,” Kerry Byrne, TQL executive vice president, said in a news release.
TQL began the $1 Per Load campaign in 2009.
“We greatly appreciate the generosity of TQL and its employees,” Chris Laine, chairman of board of the Yellow Ribbon Support Foundation, said in the release. “This donation will be used to fund scholarships honoring the memory of the Tri-State’s fallen warriors, as well as to send care packages to those currently serving in harm’s way. We’re proud to have TQL as our partner and look forward to continuing this noble task of remembering those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.”
