Washington – Today, the American Trucking Associations’ Trucking Cares Foundation announced that Werner Enterprises has committed to becoming the 19th member of the TCF Founders Club.
“Werner emphasizes safety, service, leadership and community as four of our core values, where we strive to leave the communities in which we serve better than how we found them,” said Derek Leathers, Werner’s chairman, president and CEO. “Being a Founders Club member of ATA’s Trucking Cares Foundation reflects Werner choosing to lead from the front. Our company goals align with TCF’s goals through their work in improving the safety of the trucking industry and the safety, security and sustainability of America’s highways and the communities we serve.”
The Founders Club is a special class of donors comprised of individuals and corporations committing to a $100,000 contribution over a 10-year period. Founders Club members will receive special recognition across Trucking Cares Foundation programs for their early and generous commitments to making our mission a reality.
“Because of the support of Founders Club members like Werner, the Trucking Cares Foundation is able to provide critical support for important causes in the US and around the world,” said TCF President John Lynch. “These donations allow us to respond quickly to when needs arise, as well as make ongoing contributions to important causes throughout the year.”
The Trucking Cares Foundation is the trucking industry’s charitable arm, focusing on several core areas, including humanitarian and disaster relief; eradicating human trafficking; leadership development; strengthening the industry’s relationships with law enforcement, the military and veterans’ organizations; safety and research opportunities.
