Cincinnati – Total Quality Logistics (TQL) raised $17,025 for the Yellow Ribbon Support Foundation from its $1 Per Load fundraising effort. The Yellow Ribbon Support Foundation oversees both the Let Us Never Forget Scholarship Fun and the Yellow Ribbon Support Center. During the week of May 13 through May 19, one dollar from every load TQL arranged was set aside for this annual donation to the troops. The check was presented to the Yellow Ribbon Support Foundation today during a Memorial Day event at the company’s Cincinnati headquarters.
“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,” said TQL Executive Vice President, Kerry Byrne.
TQL started its $1 Per Load effort in 2009 and this year’s contribution is the largest amount raised to-date for this effort. All total, the company has raised more than $53,000 for the Yellow Ribbon Support Foundation with this effort.
“We greatly appreciate the generosity of TQL and its employees,” said Chris Laine, Chairman of Board of the Yellow Ribbon Support Foundation. “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.”
Total Quality Logistics is a member of the Army Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) program, which helps connect soldiers with employers, and actively recruits qualified candidates from all branches of the military. TQL was also honored with an Above & Beyond Award last weekend from the Employer Support of Guard and Reserves (ESGR), a department of defense office, for its efforts to support employees serving in the National Guard and Reserve.
