"We have been lucky to be one of the leading trucking companies in the nation," said Radojicic. "That is why it is critical we give back."
CROWN POINT, IN, September 21, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The expert team at Distance Trucking, under the leadership of President Bojan Radojicic, made a generous donation to St. Jude House after being treated to an inside look at the fantastic operations and support being offered to the community. For years, Distance Trucking – a national transportation and logistics company based in Bridgeview, IL – has made every effort to give back to community organizations.
The most recent selection of St. Jude House was due in part to a unique insider look provided by St. Jude's Executive Director Ryan Elinkowski. This tour featured many of the hardworking staff and surrounding community that makes St. Jude House a beacon of solace, support, and hope during some of the most trying times a family or individual can experience.
"We heard about St. Jude from their work in the community," says Distance Trucking President Radojicic. "When we were given a chance to take a tour, it became immediately apparent this was more than a shelter. Every interaction we had carried the full weight of trust and support anyone would want when facing such challenges. It has been our honor to support such a well-deserving organization."
Since 1995, St. Jude House has been serving the greater Crown Point community by offering shelter, services, and support to victims of domestic violence or sexual assault, as well as their dependent children. All of this is offered completely free to the many residents and human beings that need genuine care and safety to move on with their lives.
"We have been lucky to be one of the leading trucking companies in the nation," continues Radojicic. "That is why it is critical we give back. We create a family atmosphere and understand the importance of having a safe and secure work environment. So it only makes sense to give and collaborate with another organization seeking to do the same at such a critical time. We can only thank the team at St. Jude's for providing us with the experience of a lifetime. We cannot wait to become part of this community and give back in any way we can."
