Prime Inc. donated a large portion of funds from its canceled 2020 company events to several charities.
Prime typically recognizes and celebrates its driving and nondriving associates across the country through dinner parties and award ceremonies. “The events that we host are not cheap and the savings from not being able to provide these events to our associates are significant,” said Robert Low, founder and CEO of Prime Inc., which is based in Springfield, Mo., and ranks No. 17 on the Transport Topics Top 100 list of the largest for-hire carriers in North America. “It only made sense to evaluate the needs of the charities that we’ve worked with throughout the years and help on the behalf of our entire company.”
Prime donated $100,000 to Truckers Against Trafficking and $20,000 each to Harmony House, the Warrior’s Journey, iPourLife, Good Dads, Wounded Warrior Project and Eden Village/The Gathering Tree Inc.
Due to COVID-19, many of the chosen charities were not able to host annual events, making corporate contributions even more important.
