NFI, a leading supply chain provider, today announced a three-year relationship with the American Heart Association . In alignment with the core value of social responsibility, this work will improve the health and wellness of our communities and will support NFI employees across the country.
“Our work with the AHA directly resonates with NFI, as heart disease is the number one cause of death nationally and impacts many of our own employees and their families,” said NFI CEO Sid Brown. “The AHA shares our goal to uplift health and community causes across North America.” NFI is one of the largest third-party logistics companies in North America employing more than 14,000 associates in the United States and Canada. As an employer of choice, the company focuses on programs that improve the well-being of its employees and their families.
As part of the work with the AHA, NFI employees will receive education about heart health, participate in “Move More Month,” receive heart healthy recipes, and much more. NFI will also participate in the 2021 AHA Philadelphia Heart Ball. “I look forward to encouraging others to join me in supporting heart disease as I serve as the Chair of the AHA’s Philadelphia Heart Ball in 2022,” said Brown. The Heart Ball is one of the AHA’s largest annual fundraising events held each year to fund lifesaving research.
Supporting the AHA shows NFI’s commitment to not only the people in the communities it serves, but to NFI employees by sharing education and resources that advance health and wellness.
