HOLIDAY, Fla. (April 9, 2015): Con-way Freight generously delivered 15 pallets of new gifts and toys to children’s charity Kids Wish Network to share with kids facing life-altering situations. Courtesy of Con-way Freight, the gifts traveled from New Jersey to Florida and will reach children suffering from illness, neglect, abuse and homelessness all across the US. From the very first contact, Con-way Freight went above and beyond to coordinate the delivery from New Jersey to Florida and then right to Kids Wish Network’s door.
The pallets of toys, donated by long-time Guardian Angel Kids Preferred, were brimming with comforting stuffed animals and fun children’s games. The donation, worth over $100,000 will be distributed through the charity’s Holiday of Hope gift-giving programs, including its upcoming Louisville Holiday of Hope On Tour event April 19th.
Con-way Freight will be playing a large role at the On Tour Event in Louisville as the freight sponsor for the entire shipment of new gifts being transported to the area. In connection with the Mayor’s office, the Kids Wish Network On Tour Event will bring smiles to the faces of over 3,000 of the area’s youth.
Kids Wish Network would like to thank Con-way Freight for its dedication to the local community and welcome it to the Guardian Angel family.
“Kids Wish Network is overwhelmed by the support from Con-way Freight,” says Kids Wish Network Executive Director Anna Lanzatella. “Understanding Con-way’s dedication to corporate social responsibility and its employees, we are thrilled to partner with Con-way for other Kids Wish Network programs. We’re delighted that Con-way Freight will be supporting the Louisville On Tour Event and are excited to invite Conway’s Tampa Bay employees to assist with our local Gift Bank program over the 2015 holiday season.”
“Giving back to the communities where we live and work is a core part of Con-way Freight’s culture,” said Mike McDonough, Tampa service center manager for Con-way Freight. “Our employees have a real passion for supporting local organizations like Kids Wish Network and it means a lot that we can deliver happiness and comfort to kids in need, and we look forward to continuing our support of this organization.”
