TMC Transportation Helps Make the Holidays Bright
DES MOINES, Iowa, December 17, 2008 - TMC Transportation, the nation's largest privately-owned flatbed carrier, launched a new holiday fundraiser this year called Boxes of Hope.
Drivers and associates from TMC's seven terminals worked together to fill 334 paper boxes with nonperishable food and necessary items. The Boxes of Hope were then donated to local charities that serve the homeless and struggling families. The boxes will not only provide food for the holidays, but hope for the future.
"I am extremely pleased and proud of the outpouring of support our employees have shown for the Boxes of Hope program," said Harrold Annett, CEO and Chairman. "The response that could be described as almost amazing in spite of some of the toughest financial times we have witnessed in decades is a true testament to the outstanding character of people working at TMC."
