CFI associates raise $41k in Truckloads of Treasures campaign

For the 29th consecutive year, associates of CFI have come together to raise funds that will support the critical needs of local charities and community service organizations in cities where CFI employees live and work across the U.S., Canada and Mexico. This year, the annual Truckloads of Treasures holiday giving campaign raised $41,000, which pushes the overall total of employee contributions since inception in 1993 to over $1 million.

The annual holiday tradition is a hallmark of CFI’s unique community-friendly culture, engaging associates across the company’s terminals, and more than 2,000 professional drivers traveling North America’s highways to keep the economy moving.

The campaign contributes to charities nominated by associates and benefits underserved families, children, and the elderly during December. Some eight charities based in CFI’s headquarters of Joplin, Missouri received contributions from Truckloads of Treasures this year.

In 2022 alone, CFI completed 28 total in-kind shipments for three different charities. Since 2015, CFI has been a proud national sponsor of Holy Joe’s Café, which supplies donated coffee to U.S. troops in over 70 countries. The company donates between $30,000 and $80,000 a year with in-kind transportation, moving coffee supplies to military bases in the continental U.S., which are then shipped to soldiers overseas to give them a small taste of home.
