Groendyke Transport recently joined American Trucking Associations’ Trucking Cares Foundation as the 30th member of the TCF Founders Club.

“As a family-owned company in our 91st year of operation, the Groendyke family is proud to support the American Trucking Associations’ Trucking Cares Foundation as a Founders Club member,” Greg Hodgen, Groendyke president and CEO, said in a news release. “The TCF does great work, which we are honored and grateful for the opportunity to help further. It’s an outstanding vehicle for giving back to an outstanding industry that has provided so much for our family and our employees throughout Groendyke’s history.”

The Founders Club is a special class of donors comprised of individuals and corporations committed to a $100,000 contribution over 10 years. Founders Club members will receive special recognition across Trucking Cares Foundation programs for their early and generous commitments to making ATA’s mission a reality, the association said.

“Because of the support of Groendyke and all of our Founders Club Members, the Trucking Cares Foundation is able to provide critical support for important causes in the U.S. and around the world,” said John Lynch, president of the Trucking Cares Foundation. “Groendyke’s contribution allows TCF to respond quickly when needs arise, as well as make ongoing contributions to important causes throughout the year.”

The Trucking Cares Foundation is the trucking association’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 and military and veterans’ organizations, and safety and research opportunities.
