This holiday season, Medallion Transport Holdings and companies will be contributing to the Ronald McDonald House Charity in Charlotte, NC to help the families of children receiving treatment in Charlotte-area medical facilities.
Medallion Transport Holdings is the parent company to Medallion Transport & Logistics, NHH Services, Medallion Hospitality and ACE Heavy Haul. There are eight locations among the companies and each location will host a box where donations can be made by company staff.
All companies and locations will be be collecting items in the following categories: food and pantry needs, cleaning items, family and house items and special items which fall under “Christmas Wish List,” and includes board games, puzzles and Legos.
Items collected from all offices will be shipped to Medallion’s North Carolina office by Dec. 17, at which time company officials will deliver the goods to the Charlotte-area Ronald McDonald House.
Medallion Transport Holdings has been known for giving back to communities local to its companies and office locations.
Last November, with the efforts of the company’s VP of Heavy Haul, the company raised and donated thousands to Hurricane Harvey victims and some NHH staff were directly involved in helping several families rebuild and repair parts of their homes, yards and porches.
With vendors and customers nationwide, they also were able to collect clothes, shoes and other supplies for victims that were displaced. The company’s LTL division in Olive Branch was able to get all the shipments to Texas for distribution to families shortly after the hurricane hit.
This year’s involvement with the Ronald McDonald House will mean helping families who have to travel far and for long periods of time while a young family member receives treatment. The expenses families incur to sleep, eat and live day-to-day lives are all out of pocket. With Medallion’s partnership with the Ronald McDonald House in Charlotte, some of the families may have a better holiday season.
