Hurricane Irma is the strongest hurricane ever to hit Florida and the Caribbean. The hurricane has left behind catastrophic devastation, starting what could become a complex, multi-country relief and recovery effort. This follows closely on the heels of the historic devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey in Texas.
Our thoughts are with any in the CFI family directly impacted by these storms, and we are following our established disaster protocols to track anyone affected.
We have been humbled to see the outpouring of support by individuals within the CFI family and by our parent company TFI International in the aftermath of each storm. For both Hurricane Harvey and Irma, TFI International has pledged $250,000 to relief efforts for a total $500,000 donation. CFI will be completing in-kind transportation of donations as part of relief efforts.
It is important that we continue to come together to help mitigate the terrible consequences of these events and we will continue to assist with recovery efforts. You can read about some of the ongoing work happening here and here. Employees are also encouraged to donate on an individual level to the Red Cross. Hurricane Irma Red Cross donations are now being collected here.
