Total Quality Logistics Raises Close to $200K for the United Way

Cincinnati--Total Quality Logistics (TQL) employees recently reached into their pockets during the company's annual internal United Way campaign and raised $198,089 for the United Way. Company employee participation reached 73% this year. TQL inspired employee giving during this tough economy by matching 50 cents for every dollar of individual donations, in addition to sponsoring prizes and luncheons for competitions between departments.

"We are happy to mobilize our team on behalf of the United Way," says TQL Executive Vice President Kerry Byrne. "Over the past five years, TQL has donated $828,882 to this great organization and we will continue to support United Way's efforts as we expand into new cities across the U.S."

The United Way focuses on funding education, income and health initiatives. The organization partners with local chapters of non-profit organizations to accomplish its mission, including Big Brothers Big Sisters, YWCA and YMCA, the American Heart Association, and Boy and Girl Scouts of America, among others. United Way of Greater Cincinnati holds its annual fundraising campaign August through December.

"United Way's work is essential to helping our family, friends and neighbors become more successful in all of life's endeavors," says Kay Geiger, chair for the 2011 United Way of Greater Cincinnati Campaign.

United Way is just one of many community initiatives Total Quality Logistics and its employees support through its TQL Cares program, an employee-driven community service committee. So far this year, TQL employees have volunteered more than 500 hours and donated to various charities including the Ronald McDonald House, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, American Heart Association, March of Dimes and more.
