TQL Recognizes Humane Society of Broward County with Moves that Matter Gift
FORT LAUDERDALE – Total Quality Logistics announces its eighth Moves That Matter gift. TQL will present a $1,000 check to the Humane Society of Broward County as part of the Moves That Matter campaign.
Moves That Matter benefits non-profit organizations who use the truckload transportation industry to move items that will help those suffering or in need. TQL employees, customers or carriers can nominate non-profit organizations with whom they have worked to help move an important load of freight.
The Broward County Humane Society and TQL partnered to help transport items related to the 2015 Walk for the Animals fundraiser, a mile-long stroll for people and pets along the New River and through downtown Fort Lauderdale. The check presentation will take place at Huizenga Plaza Saturday, Feb. 28, during the annual walk.
“Not only is the Moves That Matter gift valuable in a monetary sense, but the ease of transporting items for the event is a real weight off our shoulders,” said Leslie Jablonski, Walk for the Animals coordinator. “We’re hopeful beyond this we can develop our partnership even more.”
“We are aware of the many needs of the communities where we operate,” said Kerry Byrne, TQL president. “The Humane Society of Broward County reaches about 150,000 people and places about 9,000 pets with new families every year. We’re happy to support that kind of effort. TQL is fortunate to be in a growth mode, allowing us to create jobs and help worthwhile organizations like this.”
Any TQL employee, customer or carrier who has had the honor of being a part of a move that mattered for a qualified 501 (c) (3) is asked to share their story by emailing MovesThatMatter@tql.com. Full program details and eligibility requirements can be found at www.tql.com/Moves-that-Matter.
