– Total Quality Logistics is known as a company with drive.
TQL’s carrier services division – located on Edison Drive in Milford – proved it again as it collected a month’s worth of food for
Move For Hunger
, gathering 654 pounds of non-perishable goods.
Macey Teaford organized the food drive. In addition to her work on the third-shift carrier services team, she is also working toward a degree in organizational leadership. Macey saw the food drive as an opportunity personally, professionally and academically.
“I have always had an interest in giving back,” she said. “I want to work with many organizations to get involved and set up different events. I have participated with the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati and different walks, but this was my first time planning an event.”
Teaford contacted Move For Hunger, divided the department into teams, gathered and placed collection boxes for the teams and worked with Bell Moving and Storage to deliver the items to
Shared Harvest Food Bank
“Nearly two million people are food insecure in the state of Ohio, including 1 in 4 children,” according to the Move For Hunger website. “Thank you to the staff at Total Quality Logistics, Bell Moving and Storage and everyone who made a donation.”
Macey said most food items teams collected were no surprise, but one stood out.
“The most popular food item was pasta,” she said. “The most unusual was BBQ sauce; there were actually several-bag donations filled with bottles of BBQ sauce.
“Being able to get TQL involved was one of the greatest experiences of my life. Working with Move For Hunger was very rewarding.”
Now Macey is offering her organizational leadership skills to other TQL offices interested in doing a similar drive, with another collection planned for TQL’s Tampa office.
“Hopefully we can get more of our TQL offices involved and help provide assistance to those who need it,” she said. “I enjoy the relationship TQL is building with Move for Hunger and cannot wait for future events.”
