Lillie’s Q, based out of Chicago, IL, is an award winning BBQ restaurant that also specializes in BBQ sauces sold around the world (purchase here –> http://www.lilliesq.com). Lillie’s Q also puts their charitable initiatives at the fore front of their business, and they wanted to satisfy some cravings through the Adopt-a-Soldier Platoon (http://www.adoptasoldierplatoon.org). Adopt-a-Soldier Platoon improves morale of the Troops and takes care of wounded heroes after their transition to civilian life. AaSP provides “Care Cartons” to troops, amongst many other supplies. These boxes are filled with healthy snacks, personal care items, and entertainment amenities that are sent every week. Lillie’s Q saw the opportunity to help by sending their delicious BBQ sauces to the troops to enjoy a little bit of home cooked flavor at their next meal away from home. These Kings of BBQ also happen to be one of BlueGrace’s amazing customers!
Giving back to our community is not only something we enjoy, it’s somewhere we can make a massive impact, given the resources we have access to. BlueGrace gives back through volunteering, fundraising, drives & sponsorships- working directly with the Humane Society, Moffitt Cancer Center and Metropolitan Ministries throughout the year. What we find even more interesting is how our customers give back and how we can help with the logistics of their generosity!
“We rely on BlueGrace for our current freight, so when we mentioned that we needed to get our sauce to the Adopt-a-Soldier Platoon people quickly, Scott was able to ship it at cost without any hesitation.” said Nina Cantamessa of Lillie’s Q.
“I am happy that I am able to help our troops even if it is only in this small way.” Says Scott Collack of BlueGrace Logistics. “So much of our time is spent looking for cost savings and scheduling that we don’t see how the freight we help ship may effect others, and this time it should help troops better enjoy their time away from home.”
We wanted to send a special shoutout to Lillie’s Q, we’re proud of your generosity and thankful to assist in your logistics needs for such a worthy cause.
