MEMPHIS, TN (October 26, 2017) C.H. Robinson, a global third party logistics (3PL) company, and its Memphis and Nashville offices contributed to a month-long, company-wide, employee-led giving campaign. This year’s campaign raised a total of $791,000 for 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.


The Memphis office hosted internal events, raising nearly $19,500 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. “We’re thrilled to have raised money for this worthwhile organization,” said Eric McKnett, account manager at C.H. Robinson. “Working together for such a great cause was fantastic. We were glad to be able to help support the work the hospital does on behalf of children.”


Employees in the Nashville office raised more than $3,100 for Old Friends Senior Dog Sanctuary. This nonprofit helps provide a forever home to senior dogs with medical problems and disabilities and resources to cover their veterinary costs. “Our team really rallied around this organization,” said Sergio Avila, senior sales executive at C.H. Robinson. “We look forward to continuing to help them in the years to come.”


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,” said Angie Freeman, chief human resources officer at C.H. Robinson. “Because of them, we exceeded our campaign fundraising goal by nearly 50 percent, helping more than 250 nonprofits locally and globally.”
