The Grimes Companies: Donating 3PL Services & Assets

In addition to its other donations, the 3PL has also made a point to contribute transportation services and assets to charity events around the community. In 2015, Grimes — in connection with Freedom 1 — contributed reefer trucks to the First Coast Heart Walk and JDRF OneWalk to transport supplies and setup materials.

“It is important that we support and take care of our local charities,” said Grimes President Neil Porter. “We are a part of Jacksonville, and the local charities need the support of local businesses to be successful.”

The Grimes Companies: Giving Back to Help Jacksonville Grow

Of all of Grimes’ charitable contributions in 2015, Porter is especially proud of the logistics company’s participation in the Pink Ribbon Golf Classic. While playing golf is fun, Porter is proud to support an organization that has raised over $1 million for breast cancer research and medical care in the Jacksonville community.

It's been fun and inspiring getting to know and interacting with some of Jacksonville's many charities and non-profit organizations. We look forward to engaging with our local community even more this year!
