Serving up service

Jan. 9, 2014

Southeastern Freight Lines’ employees last year provided 1,323 total hours of community service to those less fortunate as part of the regional LTL carrier’s “Southeastern Serves” program.

“Our commitment to serving has enabled the company to build a unique culture of customer service, and we are now taking that serving mentality to less fortunate individuals throughout the communities we serve,” said Mike Heaton, senior vice president.  “Through Southeastern Serves, we are able to give back and strengthen the communities that have supported us over the years.”

In 2013, 572 Southeastern associates participated in Southeastern Serves projects that ranged from volunteering at food drives and soup kitchens to providing school supplies and yard work.

The projects were conducted with more than 15 community organizations, including the San Antonio Foodbank, Resurrections in Lexington (SC), Coats for the Cold in Knoxville, Georgia Sheriff’s Youth Homes in Dalton, and the Charlotte Rescue Mission in Charlotte.

“Southeastern is committed to providing quality service both inside and outside of the business,” said Heaton. “We are humbled to have had opportunities to support so many deserving organizations.”
