As part of uShip’s “Highway to Help” charitable shipment program, non-profits and charities can often locate low or no-cost transport services on uShip. Among uShip’s network of thousands of carriers, many are willing to haul for deserving charities at little or no charge.
Today we were delighted to find out that auto/motorcycle hauler StreetShip completed a free shipment for one of our favorite charities in Austin, Colin’s Hope.
Colin’s Hope creates and supports water safety programs to prevent children from drowning. As part of their preparation for the summer recreation season, Colin’s Hope had an immediate need to distribute thousands of Water Safety packets. See the shipment listing here.
Executive Director Alyssa Magrum’s feedback speaks to the StreetShip’s generosity:
“uShip and their member Street Ship helped us prevent drowning yesterday by moving 10,000 of our water safety packets from their stuffing location in North Austin into one of our target zip codes in Hays County & at no cost to Colin’s Hope! We can now distribute this life saving information to families more quickly to raise water safety awareness to prevent children from drowning! Thanks again uShip and Street Ship!”
Many thanks to StreetShip and all the generous carriers hauling charitable shipments on uShip.
