OAK BROOK -- Hub Group has added the American Red Cross to its Cause Container charity campaign.
Since starting the program in 2014, Hub Group has donated more than $250,000 to its Cause Container charities, and employees have generously volunteered their own time and money at multiple cause-related events.
Hub Group custom paints several of its 53-foot intermodal containers to serve as mobile billboards for the organizations in the Cause Container campaign. It also engages the public via social media to multiply Hub Group's donation: For every unique Cause Container photo publicly posted on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or LinkedIn with the #CauseContainer hashtag, Hub Group donates $100 to the corresponding charity.
"The Cause Container program leverages the scale of our network across North America, raising awareness and funds for these great causes," said Hub Group Chairman and CEO David Yeager.
Other groups supported by Hub Group include the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago; Bright Pink, which educates about breast and ovarian cancer prevention and early detection; Fisher House Foundation, which provides free housing to families of active military and veterans as they receive care in local Veterans Administration hospitals; and National Park Foundation, the official charity of America's national parks.
