XPO Logistics, Inc. (NYSE: XPO), a leading global provider of transportation and logistics solutions, today announced a companywide shoe drive to benefit the non-profit organization Soles4Souls.
During the month of December, XPO employees will collect new or lightly used shoes to help Soles4Souls aid people living below the poverty line. The shoe drive expands on XPO’s support of Soles4Souls, following the company’s donations of supply chain services earlier this year.
"Today, on Giving Tuesday, we're launching our December shoe drive to help Soles4Souls bring comfort to children and adults in need," said LaQuenta Jacobs, XPO’s chief diversity officer. “We hope that everyone will celebrate this global day of generosity by making a difference in someone’s life through an act of kindness.”
