Holland, MI – Community Action House (CAH) is pleased to announce it has received a large truck from Zeeland-based logistics firm Inontime. The truck will provide much needed logistical support for the non-profit organization which provides more than 300,000 meals annually to local families in need, supported by a resale and thrift store. A truck capable of moving large quantities is essential to the function of the organization.
At CAH, 3 vehicles form the backbone for tens of thousands of pounds of donated food and in-kind donations each month – a Ford 15-passenger van, a Ford E-350 box truck, and a much older International large truck. The vehicle donated by Inontime will replace CAH's first truck, a beloved but aging International 4000 which the nonprofit estimates has hauled more than 2 million pounds of donated items on about 2000 trips.
The official transfer of title set the price of the vehicle at $1. CAH’s Resource and Resale Manager, Josh Hauch attended the meeting: “They shook my hand, and said 'you look like you could use a dollar', and handed me a dollar. I then paid them for the truck with that dollar. These are really great, down to earth people that are in love with serving their community,” said Josh.
Inontime continues to care for the community, supporting a variety of community causes chosen by its employees. Jon Lanning, Inontime’s president, was recently recognized as a Michigan business leader by the U.S. Small Business Association for the company’s contributions to community.
