Becker Logistics has partnered with several non-profit charity organizations in the past. This year, they have chosen Bridge Communities, to uplift individuals in the community who need immediate assistance for themselves and their families. Throughout 2022, Becker Logistics will continue the fulfillment of their social promise, which is to donate $1 for every shipment that they move. These donations will be given back to the local community through various causes, events, and organizations.
“The majority of the homeless families at Bridge Communities are single moms,” said Jessica Olenick, HR Generalist at Becker Logistics. “This celebration acknowledges and supports strong women who face challenges and hardships. Also, with Becker sponsoring this event, we are able to help fund housing for these families.”

We choose Jessica to lead this effort and she’s done an outstanding job at it,” says Jim Becker, CEO and founder of Becker Logistics. “We are continuing to make a difference in the transportation and logistics world each and every day. A portion of that is helping organizations and the people there to make a difference in their lives. We try to show love and generosity to others whenever we can and however we can. I look forward to seeing what additional impacts we will be able to make in the future.”
