The month of August brought prolonged rainfall in the southern parts of Louisiana which resulted in catastrophic flooding that submerged thousands of homes and businesses. Tens of thousands of people were stranded in their homes and vehicles. It is reported that at least 30,000 people were evacuated by local law enforcement, firefighters, the Louisiana National Guard and fellow residents.

    In devastating times like this the Walgreen Company always steps up to support these downed communities through Disaster Relief donations. So on August 23, 2016, CPC Driver Shane Hatton was given the assignment to take a relief load from the Walgreens domicile in Waxahachie, Texas to the Red Cross in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.


    When Shane reached the destination and attempted to make delivery, the load was regrettably refused because it had not been palletized and the Red Cross did not have enough volunteers to unload the donations.

    Without hesitation, Shane contacted 3 Walgreens store associates and together they were able to unload 600 pieces, place them on pallets, shrink wrapped them and take the delivery back to the Red Cross where it could then be received and processed.

    We wanted to take a moment and thank Shane for going above and beyond to get this product delivered to the Red Cross so that it could be properly distributed to the thousands in need. You are a shining example of a true professional driver and we are happy to have you as part of the CPC Logistics, Inc. and Walgreen Company driver team!
