GREEN BAY, Wis. (Dec. 22, 2020) — Like so many things in 2020, Contract Transport Services’s
annual holiday bike drive looked a little different this year. Nonetheless, the trucking company
carried on its tradition of giving away free bicycles to local children in foster care, and to other kids in need this holiday season.
To make the bike drive possible, CTS truck drivers, mechanics, and office staff donated 52 brand
new bicycles. As an incentive for employees to donate, CTS gave away a 30-gallon cooler filled
with meat as a raffle prize.
Instead of hosting an event for families at its Green Bay headquarters, CTS distributed bicycles
at the end of last week to representatives from two local organizations: Foundations
Health and Wholeness and PALS of Brown County. The organizations have found safe ways to make sure the
deserving children receive their new bicycles.
“Our employees have made the holidays brighter for so many area children by providing new
bikes to these kids, and I want to thank and recognize them for their selflessness. We know that
2020 has been hard on so many families, and that’s why it’s important that donations and
fundraising continue during these challenging times,” said Curt Reitz, CTS President. “Having
the ability to give back and spread joy is one of our year’s highlights.”
As it has in years past, the CTS team also continued its tradition of participating in the
Adopt-A-Family program. The contributions by CTS and its employees have provided clothing,
household items, and other necessities to five area families in need.
CTS’s giving isn’t only a holiday event. The company has been making monetary donations to
the Green Bay Police Department, Green Bay Fire Department and Military Officers Club of
Northeast Wisconsin since 2016. This year the company contributed more than $18,000 to
those three organizations, with funds raised by CTS’s fleet of wrapped CTS semi cabs and
trailers that honor and depict branches of the military, police, firefighters, emergency medical
technicians and farmers. For each loaded mile a wrapped CTS truck travels, CTS donates two
cents to local charities representing the groups depicted on the cabs and trailers.
