News From CT Current news from CT http://www.ctlogistics.com English CT Oklahoma Tornado and Good People Fund Support A local congregation, Temple Israel Ner Tamid of Mayfield Heights, Ohio has at it’s core philosophy a policy of giving to those less fortunate; Acts of Tzedakah=giving/charity. A few years ago, starting with Hurricane Katrina, they mobilized their congregants and begin to collect donations to send into disaster areas for distribution to those local families in need. Specifically, the idea of replacing a lost keepsake that children cling to for support (stuffed animals, blankets, etc.) was implemented. The congregation buys hundreds of new stuffed bears, the congregant members add a personalized note and then box them and ship them to areas in need. CT is again donating the cost to send these stuffed bears into the heart of the Oklahoma tornado area to 4 firehouses and the main police station. The police, EMS, and firefighters will hand them out to all children in the shelters, Red Cross areas, community centers, and homes where these children are now staying. Additionally, CT/RW is donating the use of one of our full trucks to deliver donations and supplies into one of the poorest rural areas in the US, an Appalachian county in McRoberts, KY; which the Good People Fund, Temple Israel and CT have supported for the last 4 years; this pick up from the Youngstown Community Food bank by our RW driver will be delivered to volunteers in KY for distribution to this community-it’s schools and it’s residences. ?articleID=39 Mon, 19 Aug 2013 00:00:00 GMT CT CT Awarded Top 100 IT Logistics Provider - 2013 On April 24, 2013 is was announced that CT Logistics has been selected as an Top 100 Logistics IT Provider for 2013; Inbound Logistics has awarded CT the desired award for eight years in a row.
