EDEN PRAIRIE, MN (October 27, 2017) C.H. Robinson, a global third party logistics (3PL) company, and its corporate campus and St. Paul and Sartell offices contributed more than $340,000 to a month-long, company-wide, employee-led giving campaign. The campaign raised a total of $791,000 for a variety of local and global charities. In addition to the Robinson Cares campaign fundraising, employees accumulated more than 1,450 volunteer hours, helping their neighbors in need.


Employees at the corporate campus held tournaments, sales and a 5K run and walk to raise $334,000 for the C.H. Robinson Employee Hardship fund, assisting employees in times of financial need, and the following charities:

“Our dedicated network of global supply chain experts truly go above and beyond to help the communities we are proud to call home.” said Dan Ryan, vice president at C.H. Robinson and campaign co-chair. “I’m proud of their commitment to making an even bigger impact for our neighbors, and I look forward to next year’s campaign.”


The St. Paul office also held sales and tournaments to help raise $1,000 for the company’s Employee Hardship Fund. “The money we raised will help our team members affected by the recent hurricanes,” said Justin Jones, sales manager at C.H. Robinson. “I’m proud of our company and my colleagues for coming together to make an impact.”


In Sartell, employees raised more than $7,500 for the following charities: Wounded Warrior Project, ALS Association, Anna Marie’s Alliance: Women and Children’s Shelter and the C.H. Robinson Employee Hardship Fund. The team also made 20 hand-tied blankets for Anna Marie’s Alliance. “This experience is a win-win. We have fun planning and executing our campaign’s events, and it helps our community,” said Sheena Thieschafer, director of strategic sales at C.H. Robinson.
