MHI Becomes ALAN Sustainer

Lakeland, FL. – The American Logistics Aid Network announced today that MHI has become a 2022-2023 ALAN Sustainer.

“In the past two years alone, ALAN has enabled the delivery and distribution of more than $10 million in relief supplies for hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, and the pandemic. That’s only possible because of the support of organizations like MHI, whose generous donation arrived just as we began fulfilling requests for disaster aid after Hurricane Fiona and Hurricane Ian made nearly back-to-back landfalls,” said ALAN Executive Director Kathy Fulton.

MHI’s contribution will help ALAN grow its operational capacity and contribute greatly to ALAN’s humanitarian relief efforts.

“It is MHI’s honor to be a founding member of ALAN, and to provide ongoing logistics assistance and donations as they provide important disaster response, most recently, to support ALAN’s work with Hurricane Ian recovery,” said John Paxton, CEO of MHI.
