Local Third Party Logistics Provider Fundraises Record Amount for American Heart Association
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.- Columbian Logistics Network, a logistics services provider based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, raised a record amount for the American Heart Association during the month of February. The month of February is recognized as American Heart Month.
Columbian Logistics Network hosted a variety of fundraising events to raise money for the organization. A companywide 50/50 raffle, Bowl-A-Thon, paper heart sale, and other internal activities raised a total of $2,807 for the American Heart Association. Over the past several years, Columbian has raised over $10,000 for American Heart Association.
“With having employees of our own suffer from heart disease and stroke, these fundraising events have always hit close to home for our company,” said Jilia Hagen, HR Specialist at Columbian Logistics Network, “A lot of hard work is put in to our fundraising events, but it’s very exciting to see so many employees and their families getting involved and giving back to such an amazing organization. From external truck drivers donating to sign a heart at various facilities, to internal employees donating money to wear jeans, buying t-shirts, and bowling to support the cause. We broke records this year, both in the amount we raised and the number of people at our 6th annual bowling event. I can’t wait to see what records our fundraising efforts break in the years to come!”
The American Heart Association is the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke. Heart attacks and strokes are two of the leading causes of death in the world.
