For years, Shapiro has matched employee contributions to charity and encouraged our staff to give back to the communities around us. We still match, and we still encourage! The Company donated the lion’s share of our profit after 1915, our first year in business, and charitable giving has been a part of our core values ever since. But we wanted to do more.

Our Humanitarian Logistics program is based on the simple notion that our skills and love of international shipping will add value and create opportunities for not-for-profit associations and charities who are already good at raising the essential funds and donations for people in need.  The charities can focus on their side of the equation, and we can help them realize their dreams (and perhaps help realize the dreams of their “clients”) by managing the international freight side of the equation.

We are proud to share with you that this initiative originated from our employees. Twenty percent of our staff mentioned community giving as an area of personal interest and corporate improvement.  All we can say is that we were inspired.

We couldn’t be more proud of them.  And we couldn’t be more honored to work with organizations who strive to help the poor, the needy, and the most vulnerable. Please reach out to giveback@shapiro.com for more information.

Let’s dream together.
