U.S. XPRESS BRINGS CHRISTMAS CHEER TO FAMILIES IN NEED THIS HOLIDAY SEASON
Holiday Charities Big Success for Chattanooga Community
Chattanooga, TN. (December 7, 2018) – The generosity of U.S. Xpress employees made Christmas a little brighter for children this holiday season. Employees brought the magic of Christmas to 170 children in need with The Salvation Army Angel Tree Program. The adoptions helped make sure children in the area had presents this Christmas.
“The Salvation Army so appreciates the long standing partnership we have with U.S. Xpress,” said Major Mark Smith, area commander of The Salvation Army of Greater Chattanooga. “Hundreds of children will now be able to experience joy on Christmas morning as they unwrap their gifts donated by U.S. Xpress!”
In addition to the Angels adopted this year, employees at U.S. Xpress also contributed cash donations toward The Salvation Army’s food boxes. Each food box can feed a family of four for two weeks.
U.S. Xpress President and CEO Eric Fuller said, “We are honored to once again partner with The Salvation Army and provide holiday cheer for individuals and families in need. I am also very proud of the generosity of our employees and everyone else in the community.”
For the past few years, U.S. Xpress has participated in The Salvation Army of Greater Chattanooga’s Angel Tree program and the U.S. Marines Corps Toys for Tots drive.
