EL PASO, TX (October 26, 2017) C.H. Robinson, a global third party logistics (3PL) company, and its El Paso and McAllen offices 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 El Paso office hosted a number of internal and public events, raising more than $2,000 for Candlelighters El Paso. Additionally, employees volunteered their time in the Candlelighters’ You 2 Can Make a Difference campaign, helping children create shirts and making breakfast for participants. “Being able to help, both monetarily and through the clothing drive, allows us to help reach as many children as possible,” said Jorge Flores, account manager at C.H. Robinson. Flores has a special tie with this organization, having lost his own mother to breast cancer when he was only 14 years old. “Making breakfasts, creating shirts and seeing their happy faces meant the world to me.”

Employees at the McAllen office raised over $2,000 for Mujeres Unidas and RGV Food Bank, coordinating events in their office building that were open to the public. Employees also planted 40 citrus trees so the RGV Food Bank can provide citrus fruit to the community. “We’re proud to spend our time and effort on local charities that directly help families and those in need,” said Ahidee Gracia, cross-border carrier representative 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.”
