Columbia, S.C. (August 15, 2018) – Employees of Southeastern Freight Lines, the leading provider of regional less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation services, have completed their 2018 United Way campaign with a total of more than $140,000.
“Southeastern Freight and its employees have been an amazing partner for United Way and the entire community for decades,” said United Way President & CEO Sara Fawcett. “We are grateful for their enthusiastic support of our goal to fight for the health, education and economic mobility of every person in the Midlands.”
The Southeastern Freight Lines employee campaign was led by Stephanie Cullum, Jessica Oswald and Alison Sturkie.
Southeastern also supports United Way’s efforts to increase childhood literacy through 17 volunteers who participate in the Midlands Reading Consortium, a program designed to match tutors with K-2nd grade students for one-on-one tutoring throughout an entire school year.
“For many years, Southeastern has supported United Way and the work they do to make our community a better place for everyone,” said Mike Heaton, Sr. VP for Sales & Marketing at Southeastern Freight Lines. “We believe in strengthening the communities we serve by investing in programs that make a measurable difference.”
Thanks to partners like Southeastern Freight Lines, United Way is leading the charge in improving quality of life in the Midlands by working to prevent homelessness, to provide affordable eye and dental care, and to prepare children to enter kindergarten ready to learn and graduate high school on time.
