XPO Logistics, Inc. (NYSE: XPO), a leading global provider of transportation and logistics solutions, has partnered with Elves & More to bring more than 1,000 new bicycles to children this holiday season. XPO is celebrating 12 years with Elves & More by supporting the organization's annual tradition of building and delivering new bicycles to boys and girls in Northeast Ohio.
This year, more than 400 volunteers, including XPO employees, will assemble the bicycles for delivery on 14 XPO trailers to two neighborhoods in Ohio on Sunday morning, December 17. Upon arrival, XPO employees and families, local community members and law enforcement officials will distribute a new bicycle to each child, suited to their size and age.
Meghan Henson, chief human resources officer of XPO Logistics, said, "Our XPO volunteers are proud to once again partner with Elves & More to spread some holiday magic this season."
Tim House, co-founder of Elves & More, said, "We have chosen bicycles as our gift of choice with the anticipation that the children will use their new bikes as a means of transportation to get to an after-school program, a community center, or any other place where they may find a positive role model."
