Trinity Transportation Participates in Gleaners’ Annual Food Fight!

Friday, April 20th, 2018

Gleaners Community Food Bank works hard every day to provide meals to families in need in Southeast Michigan. The holidays are a popular time for food donations, but the contributions tend to slow down in the spring. To help combat the decrease in donations, Gleaners hosts their Food Fight every year, where companies and organizations participate in a friendly competition to raise the most meals through food and monetary donations.

This year, Trinity participated in the Food Fight with 31 other organizations and companies to help ensure families don’t have to go without a meal this spring. We raised 500 pounds of food, which equals out to 415 meals!

Every season can be the season of giving – those in need in our community need food year round, and food banks like Gleaners are always accepting donations. We are proud to have helped in their efforts to feed our community!

Trinity Transportation Partners with Forgotten Harvest

Monday, December 4th, 2017

The holidays are a special time – a time full of joy, family, and giving. While enjoying this holiday season, be thankful for what you have and, if you can, give to those who are not as fortunate. Michigan’s official poverty rate in 2016 was 15 percent, with 1.45 million people living in poverty. The breakdown for the residents who live in poverty in the counties of Southeast Michigan is as follows:

  • 22..7% of Wayne County residents
  • 16.7% of Sanilac County residents
  • 14.2% of Washtenaw County residents
  • 13.9% of St. Clair County residents
  • 13.2% of Jackson County residents
  • 12.5% of Lenawee County residents
  • 11.6% of Livingston County residents
  • 10.8% of Macomb County residents
  • 9.7% of Monroe County residents
  • 8.5% of Oakland County residents

To help those in need this holiday, the employees at Trinity participated in our company’s second annual food drive. This year, we partnered with Forgotten Harvest, a non-profit dedicated to relieving hunger in Metro Detroit and preventing nutritious food waste. The employees at each of our 11 terminals participated in the collection of non-perishable food items from October 23rd to November 17th, where we were able to donate over 1,000 items!
