LEXINGTON, S.C. (Feb. 3, 2020) Southeastern Freight Lines, the leading provider of regional less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation services, today announced its participation in more than 6,200 total hours of community service across 94 projects in 2019 as part of the “Southeastern Serves” program.
Southeastern Serves is a program dedicated to giving back to communities across Southeastern’s footprint by having associates of all levels get involved with providing for the less fortunate.
“Since the first truck pulled away from a loading dock in 1950, Southeastern has been engrained in the communities it serves. The Southeastern Serves program allows us to pay-it-forward and give back to the communities who support us year after year,” said Mike Heaton, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Southeastern Freight Lines. “We are proud of our ongoing commitment to provide quality service not only to our customers but to less fortunate individuals throughout the footprint we serve.”
This year, more than 1,400 participants, including Southeastern associates, friends and family members, volunteered for projects ranging from serving meals to families in need, to volunteering at veteran organizations, homeless shelters and domestic abuse shelters. A few examples across the Southeastern footprint include:
In September 2019, Southeastern team members across the Carolinas and Virginia, worked with Samaritan’s Feet to attend title one schools where 42 salary employees spent 127 hours serving over 400 children, washing their feet, getting to know the children and donating shoes and socks to each child. Samaritan’s Feet believes a new pair of shoes and the act of foot-washing can give children hope and the opportunity for a better life.
