MEALS AND HOPE: PACKAIR LENDS HELPING HAND TO JAPAN


By: Sussan Sharifian | July 15, 2011


At Packair, the focus of our attention has always been our clients and how to provide them with the best possible service. But, on March 11, 2011, when an 8.9-magnitude earthquake struck Japan and triggered a powerful tsunami, unleashing heartbreaking devastation and tragedy in its wake, we knew it was our duty to put business aside and lend some help to our friends across the Pacific.

That's why recently Packair and a group of local community volunteers gathered in Torrance, CA as part of a joint effort to pack and ship meals to Japan. What turned out to be a simple call to action to send aid, resulted in over 500 volunteers joining us and 106,920 meals being packed and shipped to starving people in Japan, most of whom were children.

Moments like these serve as simple reminders that people come first. At Packair, we know this very well, because our clients always come first. And while we will continue to remain dedicated to our clients and the business of serving their shipping needs, we are also committed to lending a helping hand when the world needs one.
