Cincinnati, OH—Total Quality Logistics (TQL) presented the Let Us Never Forget Scholarship Fund with a $9,298 donation on Flag Day, June 14, 2011. This day was chosen because it is a day for all Americans to show respect to the American flag and the men and women who honorably defend it with their lives.
The Let Us Never Forget Scholarship Fund was founded in 2006 in honor of SSGT Matt Maupin, the first POW/MIA of the Iraqi Freedom war. Each year, scholarships from this fund are awarded in the name of a fallen hero to a high school or college student that is chosen by the family of the fallen soldier. TQL held its fundraiser during the week of Memorial Day to honor those who have served this country. The company committed $1 per truckload it arranged during Memorial Day week, which last year resulted in a donation of $7,431.
“This is our third year of donations to the Let Us Never Forget Scholarship Fund,” says TQL Executive Vice President Kerry Byrne. “Our customers have helped us increase our donation amount year over year by approximately 25%.”
Giving back to the community is of the utmost importance to TQL President and CEO Ken Oaks, and his enthusiasm for helping others has spread throughout the organization. In 2010 alone, TQL employees logged nearly 450 hours of community service and donated more than $210,000 to various charities.
