UC Group Delivers Essentials to Those in Need Throughout Florida.
BOLLINGBROOK, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, October 1, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — The UC Group continues its longstanding partnership with Global Empowerment Mission by providing transportation assistance and delivering essential aid to those effected by Hurricane Ian throughout Florida. As Hurricane Ian tracked through the Caribbean Islands, the UC Group, monitoring its progress, was already in the discussion and planning stages with Global Empowerment Mission to ensure that those who would be affected when Hurricane Ian hit landfall would have access to essential life needs. “Being in Florida and witnessing the devastation caused by Hurricane Ian, we at the UC Group see it as our responsibility to do whatever we can to help, it’s just the right thing to do.” says Steven Masiulionis, Co-owner of UC Group.
Two days prior to the impact of Hurricane Ian, the UC Group mobilized their asset-based fleet of trucks and trailers to be available when needed. Providing a team of volunteer drivers from UC Group’s Unlimited Carrier, a course was set to the GEM distribution center in Florida. As Hurricane Ian approached on its projected course, already loaded with water and pre-packaged essential goods UC was ready to move. Post landfall, UC and GEM sprung into action and started the flow of deliveries. In the coming days, the UC Group will be delivering over 50+ truck loads of essential goods throughout the hardest hit regions. “UC is a people first company, and that extends beyond our walls, we ensure that if there is a need and we have the capacity, we do our best to help.” says Brian J. Smith, Chief Commercial Officer, UC Group.
