TQL is pledging $1 million to get donated goods in the hands of those who need them most.
During COVID-19, our brokers donated their expertise and we covered the cost to move 2.2+ million pounds of food, water and PPE our customers gave to relief efforts. Inspired by their generosity, we are pledging $1 million over the next five years to Moves that Matter, a TQL Cares program, to coordinate transportation of donated goods to nonprofit and community organizations.
TQL will make sure your donation gets there on time and cover the cost.
A crisis of another kind started it all.
After 26 victims tragically lost their lives during the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, six-year old Jesse Lewis’s story hung heavy. Jesse lost his life, but his shouts to classmates to run from the gunman helped save six lives. Two years later when we got the call that Where Angels Play was building a playground in honor of Jesse, and one for each of the 26 victims, we knew we had to help.
Moves that Matter was established in 2014 and immediately covered the cost of transporting the final five playgrounds. In the years since, we have helped moved millions of pounds of donations. From emergency supplies to hurricane victims, produce and water to foodbanks, wreaths and flags to honor fallen soldiers, diapers for new moms and much more, we are reminded that some loads are ordinary, and others are extraordinary.
14 pallets of rice, water and essentials delivered to A Child’s Hope for children living in poverty.
5,850 cases of water delivered to a U.S. Navy ship docked in NYC during COVID-19.
40,000 pounds of frozen food delivered to Brother Bill’s Helping Hands for its network of foodbanks.
6,912 pounds of dry food delivered to the Northwest Harvest Food Bank.
Inspired by shipments that make a difference, we are committed to getting donated supplies in the hands of those who need them most. (Items being moved must be donated goods benefiting a nonprofit or community organization.)
