Thanks To Our Generous In-Kind Donors

Over the years ALAN has helped connect dozens of humanitarian organizations with the transportation, material handling equipment, shipping supplies and logistics space they needed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the December 2021 tornadoes, the western fires, and some of the busiest hurricane seasons on record.

Here’s a quick look at some of the needs we were able to fulfill thanks to generous in-kind donors like you.

Why We're Nuts About Uber

You may know them as the company that can ferry you from place to place. But we think of Uber as the freight company that helped us supply the free transportation required to get 35,000 pounds’ worth of donated peanut butter transported to earthquake survivors in Haiti.

A Sixth Sense For Helping

Shortly after Hurricane Ian hit, several Southwest Florida non-profits were flooded with extra requests for assistance. The six electric pallet jacks donated by our friends at Briggs Equipment, NOBLELIFT and Hy-tek enabled groups like the Harry Chapin Food Bank to handle this record demand with ease – and to distribute millions of pounds’ worth of food to hurricane survivors in just a few weeks.

Cue The Compassion

Less than three days after Hurricane Ian hit, Operation Barbecue Relief was on-site and ready to serve nearly a million hot meals – thanks in part to ALAN and in-kind donors C&S Wholesale Grocers and BJ’s Wholesale Club, who stepped in to provide vital refrigerated food storage. Meanwhile a dream team of other donors like Cowan Systems and RLS Logistics enabled us to supply the donated transportation required to ship 100,000 pounds’ worth of bread, rice, vegetables aluminum pans and frozen meals from various points across the country.

Keep On Trucking

More than a year after the start of the pandemic, ALAN and in-kind donors like CEVA were still busy providing a range of donated logistics services to various non-profits that were engaged in COVID-19 prevention efforts – including this free shipment of PPE from Salt Lake City, UT to Dulles, Virginia.

Cool Donation. Warm Heart.

Fourteen pallets of donated yogurt were in danger of going to waste until ALAN in-kind donor Burris Logistics stepped in with the free refrigerated transportation required to successfully ship them to two food banks in New Jersey.
