Louisiana Flood Relief Drive

GlobalTranz Initiates Louisiana Flood Relief Drive

admin News 0 Comments

We have facilitated a relief drive for Louisiana flood victims by partnering with Pegasus Logistics Group to send collected items to Mid City Redevelopment Alliance, Inc. in Baton Rouge for distribution to those in need.

“The storm affected many homes in Louisiana. The flood produced devastation that has displaced many families and businesses.  The GlobalTranz community wanted to help those impacted by this tragedy.  Our team made contact with Mid City Redevelopment Alliance, Inc. in Baton Rouge to receive and distribute donations” said Chris Kyriakopoulos, Credit Manager at GlobalTranz.

Mid City Redevelopment Alliance is a local non-profit in the heart of Baton Rouge. Mid City has been working to revitalize Baton Rouge’s city center for 25 years. They were founded by a local hospital and over the years have distinguished themselves as a leader among the non-profit community.

“To help in our efforts, GlobalTranz partnered with Pegasus Logistics to load and transport donations from Arizona to Louisiana. Pegasus Logistics, a veteran in the logistics industry for over 20 years, jumped at the chance to partner with us to help the victims of Louisiana,” said Grant Glasser, Vice President of Carrier Operations at GlobalTranz
