Giving Back

BACKHAUL CARES

We are continually looking for new opportunities to contribute to the growth and development of our community.

In addition to collecting monetary donations, we also organize blood drives and other community service events to encourage our employees to get involved around the Greater Indy Area.

Featured Service Organization
Riley Children’s Foundation

The annual Backhaul Direct Golf Outing in Indianapolis is one of our largest philanthropic events.

For the last two years, all of the proceeds from the outing have been donated to the Riley Children’s Foundation in honor of Lee Johnson, a former employee battling brain cancer. In 2015, we raised $3K for the organization and were able to name a “red wagon” after Lee Johnson. Kids at the hospital get to ride in these little red wagons to get around the hospital for various treatments and procedures. The wagons are fitted with license plates acknowledging donors. In 2016, we exceeded our goal and raised $4k for the Child Life Specialist Department.
