EDEN PRAIRIE, MN (September 14, 2016) —
C.H. Robinson, a global leader in third party logistics (3PL), is hosting Robinson Cares events, a community giving campaign, at its corporate headquarters and locations throughout North America. The goal is to raise $450,000 from its employees for local, national, and global charities.

“Our employees are the best in the logistics industry, and making a difference in the communities in which we live, work and play is at the heart of the culture at C.H. Robinson,” said Angie Freeman, chief human resources officer at C.H. Robinson. “With the expansion of Robinson Cares to cities across North America, our employees are excited about the even bigger impact they will have on our communities and neighbors.”

Over the last 17 years, C.H. Robinson’s corporate headquarters has hosted Robinson Cares Week the third week of September, raising over $2.6 million for local and national charities. To make a bigger impact, offices throughout North America are participating in this initiative.

Offices participating in Robinson Cares events throughout September include:

“We support the causes that are important to our employees, and they consistently tell us that our focus on giving back is one of the reasons they love working at Robinson,” said Freeman. “Not only is this a time for us to come together as a company to support our communities, we also have some fun while supporting great causes!”
