Cumberland Partners with St. Jude’s and End Slavery Tennessee to Launch the Cumberland Foundation
by Calleigh Minor
At Cumberland, we operate day in and day out by our Core Values. We want to extend those values into our communities as much as possible. Which is why we’ve starting the Cumberland Foundation.
The Cumberland Foundation officially kicked off at the start of 2020 and we are excited to see what the future holds.
This year we’ve partnered with two charities. Partnerships include monetary support and opportunities to volunteer. In 2020, we’ll be working with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and End Slavery Tennessee. We plan a continuing partnership to make a real difference. We will get employees, customers, families and vendors involved in volunteer opportunities and fundraisers to bring awareness to these organizations.
Most of you are familiar with St. Jude’s. Their mission is “to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment”. This organization has directly affected lives of our own employees and customers, along with hundreds of thousands across the United States.
The second non-profit organization, End Slavery Tennessee, is a local charity who strives “to promote healing of human trafficking survivors and strategically confront slavery [to] ‘create a slave-free Tennessee”. Human trafficking is prevalent in the United States, across the globe and in Tennessee, yet, the awareness of this issue is minimal. Cumberland International, and the wider trucking industry, can make a direct impact with awareness education for drivers, customers and families. Being a local charity in Tennessee, partnering with End Slavery gives us the opportunity to participate in hands-on volunteering, while creating long lasting relationships with their CEO, Margie Quin, (a former agent with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation), and her staff.
We are incredibly excited to launch the Cumberland Foundation and look forward to making a positive impact within our communities and industry.
