XPO employees are driven to give back, and they take pride in contributing to their communities. In 2018, there were hundreds of examples of XPO and our employees providing service to the communities where we live and operate. For example, for several years, XPO has been the transportation partner of Elves & More, a non-profit organization that builds and distributes new bicycles to children in need in the Midwest during the holiday season.
We also use our services when a community is in need. After Hurricane Michael struck the Florida Panhandle in October 2018, XPO partnered with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to gather community donations of toiletries, clothing, household goods and other essential items. XPO volunteer drivers took two 28-foot trailers full of donations to communities in need.
We’re proud to begin our partnership with Operation Backpack to ensure children living in shelters and experiencing homelessness have supplies for school.
