GRAND RAPIDS, MI (October 26, 2017) C.H. Robinson, a global third party logistics (3PL) company, and its Grand Rapids office contributed to a month-long, company-wide, employee-led giving campaign. The campaign raised a total of $791,000 for local, national and global charities. In addition to the Robinson Cares campaign fundraising, employees accumulated more than 1,450 volunteer hours, helping their neighbors in need.


The Grand Rapids office hosted internal events, including raffles and onsite food trucks, raising $12,000 for the following charities: Westwood Middle School, The Boys and Girls Clubs of Grand Rapids, Be Nice Foundation and Mackenzie’s Animal Sanctuary.


“Thanks to the hard work of our philanthropy committee and generous donations from employees and local businesses, we were able to surpass our fundraising goal. It was a very rewarding experience for everyone involved, and we couldn’t be more excited to present the charities with our contributions,” said Adam Earle, training consultant at C.H. Robinson.


Since 2005, C.H. Robinson, along with its Foundation, has given over $23 million back to our communities.

“Our employees are the best in the industry — not just in their supply chain expertise, but their dedication to making an impact in their communities on the issues that matter to them most,” said Angie Freeman, chief human resources officer at C.H. Robinson. “Because of them, we were able to support more than 250 nonprofits working locally and globally.”
