Rand Logistics launches Marine Miracle Month program
Rand Logistics, Inc., a leading provider of bulk freight shipping services throughout the Great Lakes Region, announced the launch of its Marine Miracle Month, a new program to benefit children’s charities.
Rand will donate $0.05 for every ton of cargo carried by its fleet during August 2016 to non-profit organizations with a primary focus on the health and well-being of children. The company will provide its customers the opportunity to select the children’s charity of their choice and will make the donations in each customer’s honor. The donation amount will be based upon the total tons each customer ships during the program month. Total donations could amount to in excess of $100,000 based on historical August tonnage. Rand expects to distribute funds to designated charities in September 2016.
“Marine Miracle Month creates a vehicle for Rand to give back to our communities and expand the reach of our Corporate Social Responsibility efforts, while strengthening partnerships with our valued customers,” said Ed Levy, Rand’s President and CEO. “We are looking forward to making Marine Miracle Month an annual event for Rand, our customers and the organizations and children in the communities that it positively impacts.”
Customers will work with their Rand representatives to select a qualifying not-for-profit organization. Selected organizations must hold 501(c)(3) status in the U.S. or be a registered charity in Canada providing services and benefits to children.
