SAVANNAH, GA (June 13, 2023) – Fleet Advantage, a leading innovator in Class-8 fleet data analytics, equipment financing, and life cycle cost management (LCCM), has received the 2023 Purpose Award for Community Engagement by the Transportation Marketing and Sales Association (TMSA) at their annual Elevate Logistics Marketing & Sales Conference.
TMSA’s Purpose Award honors distinguished companies that go above and beyond their regular duties by impacting their communities and the planet. As a staunch advocate of supporting community-based initiatives and programs benefiting children and families as well as the transportation industry, Fleet Advantage’s Kids Around The Corner Foundation (KATC) has been the driving force behind the company’s commitment toward bringing hope and lasting change to children in communities around the country.
The KATC Foundation was founded to support smaller organizations and communities where their employees and clients live and work —the organizations that typically don’t have access to many funding options. Since 2014, KATC has donated to over 35 charities. Fleet Advantage also volunteers in a mix of independent and employer-sponsored activities.
In addition to monetary donations and volunteer efforts, Fleet Advantage also focuses on impactful initiatives, such as donating a tractor to the Horseplay Therapy Center, which uses horses to provide various therapies for children, veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder and others. Other organizations and events KATC worked with in 2022 include, Feeding South Florida, Kids in Distress, Hands on Broward – Jubilee Center and 4Kids.
“Kids Around The Corner believes our responsibility is to give back and foster community involvement, and our entire team at Fleet Advantage is thankful to TMSA for recognizing our efforts with this award,” said Elizabeth Gomez, Marketing Manager for Fleet Advantage and Committee Chair for Kids Around the Corner. Just in 2022 alone, KATC helped over 18 organizations with donations, and we look forward to expanding on these numbers and changing more lives in the process this year.”
