IWLA raises $50,000+ for ALAN

International Warehouse Logistics Association, the resource for warehouse logistics, and its members recently gave more than $50,000 to the American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN).

The fundraising campaign, in conjunction with IWLA’s 125th Anniversary, involved matching funds contributed by IWLA members since the March 2016 IWLA Convention. By the July 1 deadline, IWLA members contributed $25,650 to ALAN. IWLA matched those dollars (up to $25,000) and recently presented the funds to ALAN Executive Director Kathy Fulton.     “ALAN works to facilitate the supply chain during emergencies – natural disasters or other calamities. There is no better charitable partner for IWLA members as professional warehousing and logistics services are key during these times,” says IWLA President & CEO Steve DeHaan, CAE. “ALAN can only do so much on its own. It takes certain coordinated efforts and a ready network to meet ALAN’s goals. It also takes money. This campaign highlighted the synergy between ALAN and IWLA.”     IWLA has committed to a $25,000 annual-match program through 2018. The anticipated $50,000 or more each year will give ALAN a reliable base source of funding. The IWLA Board of Directors unanimously voted to support ALAN on a long-term cycle in March 2016.   Many IWLA members regularly donate time, equipment, facilities, and services to ALAN projects.
