Cadence Premier Logistics & Illinois Trucking Association partner with Will County Veterans Assistance Commission

     

 The Will County Veterans Assistance Commission received a generous donation last Thursday from Cadence Premier Logistics and the Illinois Trucking Association. Two semi-trailers filled with water, diapers, cleaning supplies and other items were delivered to the Joliet Armory for distribution to veterans living in Will County.

         “This is a perfect gift for our veterans at the holiday season,” said Will County Executive Larry Walsh. “We are grateful to the incredible generosity of Rocky Caylor and Cadence Premier Logistics and the Illinois Trucking Association for gathering these important supplies for the benefit of our veterans.” 

          Caylor said Cadence wanted to do something to “give back” to Will County, where the company operates its intermodal center. Caylor said he reached out to Walsh for some ideas and Walsh suggested working with the county’s Veterans Assistance Commission (VAC).

        “Larry’s suggestion of assisting local veterans was a great idea,” Caylor said. “We collected more than 40,000 pounds of goods for our veterans. I served in the United States Marine Corps for six years and I am happy to do anything I can to help our veterans.”

           Kristi McNichol, Superintendent of the Veterans Assistance Commission, said she “loves the idea of combining private, county, and state government in order to meet veteran community needs.”

          “This time of year can be hard on everyone, and having people like Mr. Walsh and Mr. Caylor think of giving back to our service members, warms my heart.”

       For more information about the Veterans Assistance Commission, call (815) 740-8389.
