WG to Mark Transportation Program Anniversary by Holding Giving Day Campaign

For nearly ten years, Western Growers has been strategically aligned with C.H. Robinson through the Western Growers Transportation Program (WGTP) allowing us to offer our members access to a full array of turnkey supply chain solutions that include consultative account management, tailored pricing options, national surge capacity and business intelligence.

To mark the 10-year anniversary of this very successful program, on Wednesday, August 24th, Western Growers is teaming up with C.H. Robinson, Feeding America and other WGTP-licensed associations to hold a one-day philanthropic event to give back to communities in need.

Grower-shippers can contribute to this ‘Giving Day’ campaign by making a monetary or product donation. C.H. Robinson will warehouse and transport the donations to Feeding America locations across the country where they will be distributed to communities in need.

Western Growers is very appreciative of the efforts of C.H. Robinson, Feeding America and the following licensed association who are participating in this philanthropic event:

  • California Fresh Fruit Association
  • Idaho Grower Shipper Association
  • National Onion Association
  • Texas International Produce Association
  • Fresh Produce Association of America
  • Florida Fruit & Vegetable Association
  • Georgia Fruit & Vegetable Growers Association

Please stay tuned to Spotlight and our social media pages (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn) for more information about the event and how you can participate! In the meantime, please go to our Transportation Program 10-Year Anniversary Giving Day website for more information.
