How Averitt Express Gave 4,000 in Community Service Hours in 2016

Back in 2012 the trucking company Averitt Express was turning 40, and the business’s leaders wanted to celebrate. However, cake with 40 candles wasn’t nearly enough. What better way to recognize this terrific milestone than by giving back to the community. That year more than 1,200 Averitt employees gave an impressive total 3,600 voluntary hours to their communities nationwide. Thankfully the trucking company has continued its giving mission with the 40 for 40 Community Challenge. Learn more about this honorable commitment to service and what it means for the cities with Averitt Express facilities.

40 for 40 Community Challenge

Every year since Averitt Express turned 40 the trucking company has hosted the 40 for 40 Community Challenge. This challenge is extended to all of the Averitt Express facilities across the nation. It involves donating at least 40 hours of service to charitable causes for three months in October, November and December. Examples of community service projects hosted over the last five years include:

  • Hosting blood drives
  • Helping out with the Special Olympics
  • Working with the Habitat for Humanity to build houses
  • Organizing food drives and delivering meal kits for food banks
  • Leading clothing drives
  • Filling brown bag meals and distributing these among the homeless
  • Raising funds for nonprofits
  • Organizing toy drives for kids in need
  • Building a retaining wall for a group home for special needs residences

In 2016 alone the Averitt Express employees and associates at 66 nationwide facilities coordinated to complete a record breaking 4,002 hours. This is the most the company has ever accomplished during a 40 for 40 Community Challenge. It is inspiring to see associates volunteer within their communities on such a grand scale.

According to Averitt Express CEO and chairman, and former company president, Gary Sasser, “Our 40 for 40 Community Challenge has become an important tradition for our team, because it shows the commitment we have to serving our local communities. I’m humbled by our associates’ dedication to making a positive difference in the lives of everyone around them.”

Averitt Express Cares for Kids

Sasser is definitely doing his part with the 40 to 40 Challenge. For 2016 he personally gave $40,000 to the program Averitt Cares for Kids. This is a nonprofit charitable organization that is solely funded by Averitt associates and employees. For more than 20 Averitt for Kids has been financially supporting kids in need, such as via the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Today more than 86 percent of Averitt Express employees are giving members of Averitt Cares for Kids.

This program is just another way that the Averitt Express trucking company is positively impacting local communities outside of the 40 to 40 Community Challenge. Averitt gives back all year long. By setting up company-wide giving programs and giving to others Averitt and its associates are proving to be excellent examples of how to make the world a better place. In addition to Averitt Cares for Kids, the company is also active in charitable giving to the Boy Scouts of America, Girl Scouts of America, American Lung Association, March of Dimes, Humane Society, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Second Harvest Food Bank, and many, many more.

The Averitt Express philosophy is “Our Driving Force is People,” so what better way to treat people than give to those in need. Averitt goes a step further by supporting more than just their company drivers and associates. Averitt Express is dedicated to helping out the communities where their workers live, work and prosper.
