    To all Averitt drivers, if you go onto insideaveritt.com you can donate to a fund that goes directly to our associates affected by hurricane Harvey. It will be payroll deducted and it will be matched by Averitt's president! Please help our family in Texas.

    It goes directly to AVERITT associates who LIVE in the devastated areas... Of course the monies get divided up among those affected, but I'm pretty sure the owner of the company wouldn't have set it up in the first place if he wasn't wanting to help his people.

    ... this is directly from Averitt's website:

    More than 600 associates donated over $46,000 to the Power of One: Harvey Relief Fund, and combined with Gary Sasser’s match, more than $93,000 was sent to 26 associates who were dramatically affected. On top of that, associates’ weekly contributions to Averitt Cares for Kids helped us donate $100,000 to assist the overall relief effort. Additionally, associates from numerous facilities came to help get our operations back up to speed.

    We’re thankful for the opportunity to help our teammates during this time, and it’s because of your efforts that we’re able to make a difference!

    But since you seem to know nothing of the company, I'll assume this is a troll post, and let it go at that.
