CFI places an emphasis on charities that align with our culture. Our heart is tied to military veterans, first responders, empowering women, education, the transportation industry, and those impacted by natural disasters. We empower our associates to be involved in their communities when we lead by example. Our support goes beyond monetary donations and includes volunteering and transportation.
We are committed to our local communities because we honor our collective legacy when we work together toward our future. By bettering the lives of the people we work with, customers we carry for, and communities we deliver to, CFI is changing an industry by setting the standard for a more creative, progressive, and reliable transportation company.
Each year through CFI’s Truckloads of Treasures program, CFI contributes to charities nominated by associates that benefit underserved families, children, and the elderly during the month of December.
Holy Joe’s national transportation sponsor since 2015, CFI donates transportation of donated coffee for our troops from the warehouses to military bases where it is distributed via our chaplain network to over 70 countries.
Annually, we proudly donate delivery for Wreaths Across America. Perennial members of Women in Trucking, we support females in the industry.
