CTS Gives Back to Local Veterans, Their Families
Green Bay trucking company wraps semi cabs and plans to donate two cents per mile driven to local veterans charity
Green Bay, Wis., February 9, 2016– Contract Transport Services, Inc., a trucking company headquartered in Green Bay, Wisconsin recently wrapped five of its semi cabs to honor different branches of the military. CTS will donate two cents for each loaded mile these trucks drive to local charities that benefit local veterans.
“CTS is a strong, local company committed to helping the community,” said Curt Reitz, president of CTS. “Our goal is to give back as much as we can to the local men and women who have sacrificed so much for the well-being of our country.”
The charities that will benefit from CTS’s generosity are the Fox Valley Veterans Council, which provides emergency funding for basic needs – like housing, utility payments, clothing, food, and transportation – to area veterans, their dependents, their survivors, and those still serving; the Northeast Wisconsin Veterans Treatment Court, which helps veterans acclimate to society through a mentor program and employment assistance, as well as treatment plans to cope with the challenges brought on by war; and Help to Heal, a camp at Big Carr Lake in Oneida County that provides rest and relaxation to veterans and their families suffering from all types of service-related health and psychological issues.
CTS is working with these charities and the Northeast Wisconsin Military Officers Club to create a scholarship fund for the children of veterans who have lost a parent in Iraq or Afghanistan.
“This is one of the best ways we can think of to support our local veterans,” Reitz said. “Many trucking companies look to hire veterans, and CTS is taking the initiative to help them. For that, we are very proud.”
The trucks that have been wrapped honor the Marines, Army, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard. In addition to logging thousands of miles on Midwest roadways, they will be seen in parades across the area this year.
