NASHVILLE, Dec. 2, 2016–Yesterday, Beacon Transport announced the start of their 2nd annual fundraiser to benefit local homeless shelters, including the Nashville Rescue Mission. Beacon staff members and truckers will be banding together to collect donations for those less fortunate. Items to be donated include seasonal items such as coats, gloves, blankets, and other articles of winter clothing. Personal hygiene items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, and soap will also be focal point of their efforts. This donation drive will run until December 16th.
Beacon Transport also announced that they have officially partnered with the Salvation Army’s Forgotten Angels program. Together, the office staff have collectively adopted two “angels,” a little boy and a little girl, both of whom come from extremely disadvantaged backgrounds. Together, Beacon’s staff plans to raise money to purchase items on these children’s’ wish lists, as well as other items they need.
