CCL pivots from flooring to food bank deliveries

Home Categories CCL pivots from flooring to food bank deliveries

Stevensville, Md.—Commercial Carpet Logistics (CCL), a Maryland trucking company that services the flooring industry, is volunteering its trucks and drivers to deliver truckloads of food to city food banks while they have the capacity available as they wait for the floor covering industry to recover from the COVID-19 global pandemic.

CCL has partnered with Move for Hunger, a non-profit organization that connects transportation companies to food banks and other charities that feed communities across America, to assist those in dire need during this public health crisis.

“It’s easy to look at declining revenues and dwell on what could have been, but at CCL we truly believe the secret to living is giving and the path to true greatness has always been paved by those that serve,” said Cassie Sealing, executive vice president, CCL.

Move for Hunger connected CCL with the Share Food Program in Philadelphia, which distributes food items to food banks across the entire city. Over the last several days, the flooring carrier has delivered nearly 80 pallets of pantry items that were donated by The Kraft Heinz Company.

“We hear a lot about corporate greed, but I feel it’s important to recognize that there are many private companies contributing to relief efforts right now, especially in the flooring industry,” Sealing said.
