Over the past 40 years, many things have changed as the Kirchner family business has evolved into the national supply chain solutions company that it is today. However, its commitment to its co-workers, customers and community has remained the same. NOTS Logistics firmly believes that a successful business is derived from a successful, thriving community.
Red, White and Blue Initiative
The entire team at NOTS Logistics is passionate about supporting charitable and non-profit organizations in its Nashville, Ill. and White, Ga. communities and beyond.
At NOTS Logistics, we have a philanthropic initiative called the Red, White and Blue Initiative. This effort is our way of giving back to first responders and military personnel who give of themselves to protect those around them. We cannot express our gratitude enough to these individuals, including several of our own NOTS Logistics team members.
Through the Red, White and Blue Initiative, we support those who are there when we need it and raise awareness for what they do for others. We do this work by donating funds to EMS, fire, police and military groups; educating our team and our community and volunteering as often as we can.
Since 1981, we have hosted over 75 educational events, donated funds to numerous groups in our community and volunteered countless hours with our local military personnel, EMS, firefighters and police officers. This is the least that we can do to give back to the people that dedicate their lives to helping others.
Kirchner Family Foundation
The Kirchner family is rooted in community service. For us to succeed, our community must also prosper. In an effort to support and give back to our local community, we have established the Kirchner Family Foundation.
Since our inception, the Foundation has supported many charitable causes in our communities where we have established a business presence such as schools and civic organizations.
The Kirchner Family Foundation and individual Kirchner family business employees all contribute in many ways including: monetary donations, supply and volunteer assistance, and national organizations such as March of Dimes, United Way, American Red Cross and the American Legion. The Foundation continues its support by honing in on support to our community schools through scholarship endowments – focusing on awarding students who have an interest in beginning their professional career in business or entrepreneurship.
The Kirchner Family Foundation firmly believes in serving our communities and fostering growth and development for future generations. As a business, we know it’s important for us to not only contribute via donations, but also to volunteer our time to assist those in need. We are continually rewarded by being able to see the business and our employees participating to better the communities we serve and support.
