LONDON, Ont. — NAL Insurance has received a ‘Make it Real’ award from Yellow Pages for its formation of the Trucking for Wishes charity.
Only 10 companies received the award. A charitable donation will be made to Trucking for Wishes as part of the award.
So far, NAL Insurance’s Trucking for Wishes program, backed by support from the transportation industry, has raised more than $75,000 for Make-a-Wish since its formation in 2007.
“Given the current economy, it becomes important more than ever to encourage Canadian small businesses like NAL Insurance to find the time, energy, money and human resources to support their local communities,” says Annie Marsolais, director of corporate communications for Yellow Pages Group. “Whether it’s coordinating a fundraising event or initiating an environmental program, it’s inspiring to see so many small businesses continuing to give back to their communities.”
“We are honoured to be selected as one of the 2009 Make It Real Program award recipients,” says Aaron Lindsay, fleet service manager, NAL Insurance. “We have truly made the Trucking for Wishes program a part of our business culture. Our success would not be possible without the volunteer efforts of our wonder staff.”
The Make it Read program is designed to recognize small companies with fewer than 50 employees, that have shown an “exceptional degree of social responsibility.”
