A Thanksgiving Gesture by Rizk Transportation Company
In the dynamic and often challenging world of freight and logistics, it’s refreshing to witness acts of kindness that transcend the daily grind. The recent initiative by Rizk Transportation Company (RTC), based out of Redmond, OR serves as a powerful reminder of the industry’s capacity for compassion and community engagement. This Thanksgiving, RTC took a remarkable step, extending beyond the realm of logistics to address a critical community need – hunger. In this piece, we unfold the story of RTC’s altruistic endeavor, where they distributed 100 Thanksgiving meals to families facing financial difficulties, showcasing a profound commitment to community welfare.
Alleviating Hunger with Generosity
The gesture was deeply appreciated by recipients like Clinton Keller, who rely on food stamps to feed their families. The Thanksgiving boxes, filled with traditional staple Thanksgiving items, were handed out by RTC staff, providing much-needed relief and joy. This initiative not only filled plates but also brought a sense of gratitude and relief to beneficiaries like Karen Humphrys, who expressed profound thankfulness for the support during financial hardships.
Giving Back in Times of Growth
For RTC, this act of giving was a reflection of its notably successful year. Fleet Services Manager Mason Engstrom highlighted the company’s growth and the importance they see in not only their success, but in giving back, especially during the holiday season. Their philosophy that no one should go hungry during this time was the basisi for this year’s generous initiative.
A Tradition of Kindness
While it was the first year for RTC as a company to organize such a giveaway, owner Mike Rizk has been personally involved in this act of kindness for three years. His commitment to continuing this tradition of generosity demonstrates the company’s dedication to supporting the community and making a difference beyond their business operations.
