Prime, Inc., the leading North American trucking company, recently donated time and funds to two great causes this month: Toys for Tots and Wreaths Across America.
Prime’s participation with Wreaths Across America included helping to haul 15 loads of wreaths across the country and assisting with a local cemetery’s wreath laying near the company’s headquarters. The Wreaths Across America ceremony took place on Saturday, December 13 at the Springfield National Cemetery.
Wreaths Across America coordinates wreath laying ceremonies on a specified Saturday each December in Arlington, VA, as well as other veterans’ cemeteries and locations in all 50 states. These events are possible by volunteers who organize local ceremonies and raise funds to sponsor wreaths. The costs of their programs are paid by sponsors, corporate donors and volunteer truck drivers.
Also on December 13, Prime held a dodgeball tournament in Springfield to raise funds for Toys for Tots. The event took place at Prime’s onsite full court gym inside their headquarters. Nine teams of six Prime associates competed for fun in the tournament. In all, they raised $500.00 for the charity. This national foundation aims to help less fortunate children experience the joy of Christmas. Each year, the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve collects new, unwrapped toys from October-December and distributes the toys as Christmas gifts.
