Since the 2018/2019 school year, the DHL Express CVG Hub has “adopted” Arnett Elementary, located in Erlanger, KY. The partnership allows DHL to connect our thousands of employees with a local school in need, creating volunteer opportunities to be a lunch buddy, to help with tutoring, reading, or facility improvement. DHL also helps support with quarterly resource drives for school supplies and helping sponsor their uniform and equipment needs.
The CVG Hub team helped coordinate a shipment from a local charitable organization to their mission school in Uganda, East Africa. The Sisters of Notre Dame from Northern Kentucky sought the help of DHL to move and deliver 11 boxes of books.
Courier Jonathan Hill picked up the pallet of donation boxes from The Sisters of Notre Dame, transported them to the hub where the team sorted and packed them for shipment to Uganda. The textbooks will benefit the all-girls secondary school, mission farm and vocation center that educates more than 600 students annually and employs 35 local residents.
DHL Express has a goal of achieving zero emissions by 2050–a program you can read more about here. Locally, DHL supports this GoGreen initiative by planting over 6,500 trees in partnership with Kenton County Conservation since 2018.
In August, the DHL CVG Hub held a collection drive for Go Pantry. The team came together to collect non-perishable food items which could be delivered to local schools. Go Pantry is a non-profit organization providing food for hungry kids in Northern Kentucky on days that schools are not open. For more information, vistit: https://www.gopantry.org/
