The 3PL covered freight shipping costs to send bottled water collected by the United Way of Pasco to the Foodbank of Eastern Michigan
PALM HARBOR, Fla., January 27, 2015: FreightCenter coordinated and paid for the shipment of 100 cases of clean bottled water to the Foodbank of Eastern Michigan.
“It’s heart wrenching to hear about the 100 thousand plus residents of Flint, Michigan having to depend on bottles of water donated by groups such as the United Way to provide a simple thing, such as clean water to its residents. FreightCenter is doing its part to help aid those families,” says CEO and President of FreightCenter, Matthew Brosious.
The water was collected over the last couple of weeks by Pasco County’s United Way. On Thursday, 100 cases were wrapped on pallets and loaded onto a truck headed to Tampa. The shipment should arrive in Flint, Michigan within a week where it will be distributed to residents affected by the water contamination crisis.
