The logistics company invites those in the Greater St. Louis region and the Metro East to donate non-perishable food, dry goods, and healthcare products to provide relief for the hurricane survivors. Mid America Logistics will deliver a minimum of two truckloads of these goods.
West County Center and the Des Peres Police and Fire Departments will also be teaming up with Mid America Logistics by contributing much-needed school supplies and backpacks for students affected by Hurricane Harvey.
Donations can be brought on Friday, Sept. 1 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Mid America's offices at 900 South Highway Drive, Suite 202 in Fenton.

In addition, Mid America Logistics will be donating one cent per mile for every shipment driven during the first two weeks of September. The monetary donations will be given to The American Red Cross Harvey Relief Efforts to provide desperately needed basic supplies and medical care for survivors. Mid America Logistics will also offer free transportation for any existing client if they donate six pallets or more of donations toward the hurricane efforts.
"As a family-run company, we strive to put people first," said Mark Kummer, president of Mid America Logistics. "We are deeply concerned for all those affected by this terrible natural disaster and are committed to helping our customers, team members, and community get through this together."
