Con-way Truckload announced that its employees raised more than $50,000 during the company's 20th Annual Truckloads of Treasures holiday giving campaign.
Nearly 200 Con-way Truckload employees, family members and friends participated in a shopping spree recently at the Joplin Target to purchase holiday gifts for local children and senior citizens in need. A Con-way Truckload tractor-trailer was present at the event to make the special deliveries to the Salvation Army.
Some of the funds raised for this year's event were distributed ($1,500 each) to seven local charities: Boys & Girls Club, Area Agency on Aging, Pro Musica, Children's Haven, Art Feeds, Camp Quality and Ronald McDonald House. The remainder was used for the shopping spree at Target.
Since 1993, Truckloads of Treasures has presented more than $612,000 in employee-raised donations to local organizations.
In addition to the Joplin shopping spree, each of the company's other terminal locations in West Memphis, Ark.; Taylor, Mich.; and Lancaster and Laredo, Texas, partnered with local organizations to provide holiday gifts and food for area children and senior citizens.
