COOKEVILLE, Tenn. — Over the course of 2019, Averitt Express associates combined to give more than 6,000 hours of community service as part of its Team Up Community Challenge. Overall, they served 6,161 hours, with 94 facilities across Averitt’s system helping 210 organizations for efforts including clothing, food and toy drives, disaster relief, litter cleanups and blood donations.
As a result of the hours served, the company is matching dollars for hours with a donation of $61,610 to Averitt Cares for Kids, the company’s associate-giving program.
“An important tradition for our team is giving back to our communities, and the Team Up Community Challenge is an outstanding way to show what our team is all about,” said Gary Sasser, Averitt’s chairman and chief executive officer. “I’m proud of the many ways our associates made a difference in 2019, and I’m even more excited about our potential to continue giving back to the communities we serve in the future.”
Together, the Team Up Community Challenge and Averitt Cares for Kids make up Averitt Charities. The mission of Averitt Charities is to help those in need through a partnership between associates and the company that gives back to the communities Averitt serves.
The Team Up Community Challenge is a year-round initiative through which each facility across Averitt’s network is encouraged to donate at least 40 hours of service to various charitable causes.
