U.S xpress, Inc. collaborates with 88.9 Moody Radio and Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls

CHATTANOOGA, TN. - August 31, 2016 - U.S. Xpress Inc., a leading provider of transportation services throughout North America, donated a semi-trailer to support the efforts of 88.9 Moody Radio and Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls.

For more than 16 years, 88.9 Moody Radio has partnered with Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls to provide hope, education, health and opportunity for children in over 80 countries around the world. 88.9 Moody listeners collected new shoes at over 150 drop-off locations in the Tennessee Valley throughout the month of August. To date, over 250,000 shoes have been donated.

Today, all of the shoes were brought to the 88.9 Moody Radio studio, where they were repackaged, counted, and loaded onto a U.S. Xpress, Inc. semi-trailer. From here, the U.S. Xpress, Inc. semi-trailer will transport the shoes to Mesquite, TX; and then, the shoes will be distributed to children in need all over the world.

Meredith Sexton, News Announcer for Mornings with Jason and Meredith, and the Listener Engagement Coordinator for 88.9 Moody Radio states, “For these children, shoes are more than an accessory—they are a means to a better life, providing them with health, education, hope, and opportunities for the future.”

Brent Manion, 88.9 Moody Radio Station Manager states, “We couldn’t be more thankful to U.S. Xpress, Inc. for donating the semi-trailer to us to transport the shoes. What we’ve learned is that this is more than just about donating shoes, but these shoes are gateways to us providing children and their families, around the world, with the love and hope that they so desperately deserve.”

U.S. Xpress, Inc. has participated in this community event for more than 12 years and has supported the efforts of both 88.9 Moody Radio and Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls.
