Our Community Giving Principles

  • We believe in supporting the communities in which we work and where our employees live.
  • We strive to be excellent corporate citizens, ever mindful of our commitment to integrity, job safety, environmental stewardship, and giving back to the communities we serve.
  • We encourage cross-group collaboration and share information about our charitable donations and practices throughout our organization and with our customers and partners.

Types of Gifts

  • Cash Grants: We give through Regional Giving Committees in Washington, Alaska, Hawaii, and the Caribbean, as well as through each of our operating companies.
  • In-Kind Services: Our companies support their communities with non-cash items, such as freight transportation, using similar criteria as cash donations.
  • Employee Matched Giving and Volunteer Programs: Our companies encourage employees to be active participants in their communities. Volunteerism and charitable giving are encouraged at all levels within our organization.
